Gulf of Mexico Plenary
Defining Restoration Success from the Local to National Level
NCER 2018 will feature a special session consisting of an all-day plenary on Monday with additional workshops on Tuesday during concurrent sessions. Day one will have a series of panels, composed of individuals representing different aspects of restoration activities, and will address the following question: What does successful ecosystem restoration for the Gulf look like? The panels will be cross-sector from the Gulf and across the nation, including scientists, decision-makers, restoration planners, and funders, among others.
In keeping with the broader conference theme, what successful ecosystem restoration looks like will be examined from the local to national level, with a focus on overarching restoration goals and how we can work together most effectively to reach those goals. We will also explore how restoration in the Gulf is influenced by work done elsewhere and how lessons learned in the Gulf might apply to other regions.
Don’t miss this opening plenary. You're sure to take-away new ideas from this informative session and benefit by applying similar approaches and lessons learned in your future restoration efforts.
