Join us for the 6th National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration

River of Grass - Everglades National Park

Overview

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. The first NCER, held in Orlando, FL (2004), lead to successful conferences in Kansas City, MO (2007), Los Angeles, CA (2009), Baltimore, MD (2011), and Chicago (2013). 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 US. Today, we are in a new era, where resources are tight. 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.


Don't just take our word for it. Here's what attendees have to say:

This conference is, and continues to be, one of the best conferences I attend.


NCER is the best ecosystem restoration forum to get a snapshot of what’s happening across the country in a variety of habitat settings.


Fantastic conference. NCER is truly unique and MUST continue.


Great conference! Logistics handled well. Sessions ran on time. Plenary sessions were outstanding. Coffee houses were excellent.
