Program Themes I Printable PDF

The primary focus of NCER 09 is to share lessons-learned from the conduct of large-scale ecosystem restoration programs both in the U.S. and internationally. Technical sessions will focus on six primary themes – click on the topical links below to view applicable subtopics within each programmatic theme.


● Ecosystem Restoration at the Watershed Scale

● New Planning Approaches to Achieve Ecosystem Restoration

● Science and Engineering Integration

Fundamental to achieving restoration success is gaining knowledge about the functionality of the ecosystem to be restored and incorporating this learning through an adaptive management framework. Sessions convened under this general theme will discuss how scientific and engineering knowledge can be used to: (1) define restoration success; (2) establish desired endpoints; (3) produce engineering design guidance; (4) measure ecological response; (5) make predictions about anticipated management actions; (6) link scientific information to management actions; (7) adjust implementation of restoration plan in order to achieve program goals and objectives.
