This event is being rescheduled

NCER 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19. While August is a little over four months out, we anticipate challenging conditions may continue even after the virus begins to dissipate, so we believe this decision is in everyone’s best interest. Our goal is to reschedule the conference during the same general time frame next year and we look forward to your continued interest and participation. Once new dates have been solidified, we will send out an email notification. In the meantime, stay tuned to the website for periodic updates. Thank you.


2020 Vision: Focusing Restoration for Success Across Diverse Landscapes

NCER is an interdisciplinary conference on large-scale ecosystem restoration presenting state-of-the art science and engineering, planning and policy in a partnership environment. NCER brings together scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners and partners from across the country actively involved in large-scale ecosystem restoration.

Since its inception, NCER has become the preeminent conference on ecosystem restoration in the United States. Today, we are in a new era. Resources are tight, and we face an uncertain climate future. Renewed vigilance on the use of public funding requires that we demonstrate progress in achieving restoration goals, clearly prove its value, efficiently and effectively share lessons learned and provide better coordination among all stakeholders ensuring the best use of future funding to achieve results. Restoration increasingly engages non-traditional conservation partners, opening new doors and creating new challenges.
