What is NCER?


NCER is the National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration - an interdisciplinary conference presenting state-of-the art science and engineering, planning and policy in a partnership environment.

NCER was previously held in Orlando, FL (2004), Kansas City, MO (2007), Los Angeles, CA (2009) and Baltimore, MD (2011). NCER brings together nearly 1,000 scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners, and partners from across the country actively involved in ecosystem restoration.

Initiated by the University of Florida, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U. S. Geological Survey, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, NCER typically entails five days of presentations in six program tracks, multiple workshops, poster sessions, field trips and coffee-house discussions dedicated to both small and large scale ecosystem restoration programs including but not limited to the Missouri and Mississippi River Basins, the Louisiana Coastal Area, Columbia River, the Everglades, the San Francisco Bay/Delta, the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes and Puget Sound, just to name a few.

NCER brings together scientists, engineers, managers, and policy makers who are actively involved in and/or affected by all aspects of ecosystem restoration. This includes federal, state, and local agency personnel, tribal governments, water resource engineers, water resource managers, environmental consultants, environmental policy managers, ecological scientists and researchers, hydrological modelers, students, and environmental interest groups.  A premier gathering of ecosystem restoration professionals from across the country, NCER is a collaborative effort and we invite you to come aboard.
