Conference Purpose

The purpose of NCER is to provide an interactive forum for physical, biological and social scientists, engineers, resource managers, planners and policy makers to share their experiences and research results concerning large-scale ecosystem restoration on both national and international levels.

Explore the Opportunities

Conference participants have the opportunity to learn about both large-scale and small local ecosystem restoration efforts and what their colleagues working at these levels have learned, what factors contributed to success, and how barriers and obstacles were overcome.

NCER further explores the roles of policy, planning and science in establishing goals and performance expectations for achieving successful and sustainable ecosystem restoration. We will also look at the importance of considering ecosystem services in restoration cost:benefit discussions. Successful partnerships and means to leverage resources are important themes that run through this conference.

Previous NCERs established a forum for individuals engaged in all aspects of ecosystem restoration to exchange information and experiences. This and future NCERs will continue this tradition by being the leading National conference for interdisciplinary exchanges for sustainable restoration of ecosystems.
