Regional Plenary Planning Committee

In keeping with tradition, NCER kicks off with a plenary session on Monday, April 15, featuring a full day of talks focused on the region in which we are meeting - the desert southwest. We are pleased to recognize a diverse group of restoration professionals who are developing a compelling agenda for this session.

While this plenary may be region specific, a key focus throughout NCER is how methods and approaches in the information presented can be:

Transferred for use in other regions or ecosystem types
Utilized in eliminating issues of uncertainty in restoration implementation
Scaled for use in smaller and/or larger restoration projects; and be
Communicated in a strategic manner to a range of restoration practitioners

Regardless of your region of focus, you are sure to benefit by the insight and experience of those on the front lines of climate change and drought. Be sure to arrive at the hotel in time to join us for a prestigious lineup of talks. To view other topics to be addressed throughout the conference, visit our Presentation Topics page.
