A new meeting has been added to the Ornithology Meetings database.

Meeting Description: Mark Your Calendar! Natural Areas Conference 2015 will be held November 3-5, in Little Rock, Arkansas. NAA members will automatically receive updates via email. Non-members can sign up for our mailing list on the homepage.

Our annual conference is an unparalleled opportunity to catch up with the latest research, receive valuable training, and network with colleagues from all over the country. The conference migrates each year to a different region of the country providing excellent opportunities for exploration of new ecosystems. Come join the camaraderie of a Natural Areas Conference!

RESEARCH
You'll catch up with ongoing research by natural areas managers and scholars from all over the U.S. as well as a few from other countries. Attendees learn about the challenges, successes and pitfalls of natural areas science, policy and education.

STEWARDSHIP TRAINING
The conference offers the opportunity for attendees to learn from a wide variety of conservation and natural areas professionals, providing attendees with practical know-how and information they can apply when they return to their jobs. Conference presentations often include models and techniques that have not yet been published in academic journals. Every year our schedule includes inspiring plenary sessions from leaders in their fields, topical symposia, hands-on workshops, and exciting field trips to explore the biodiversity and natural areas unique to the region.

NETWORKING
For our community, a key function of the conference is to provide one-on-one meetings and conversations that couldn’t happen otherwise.
This is the time to learn from your peers, seek mentoring or career advice, or sometimes just to put a face with a name. Share your stories of conservation success, brainstorm new approaches to natural areas stewardship, and learn from experts across a wide range of disciplines.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS
In recent years the Natural Areas Conference has added special events for students. Join the Speed Networking Session where you will meet a wide range of natural areas professionals and can explore career opportunities. Enter your poster or oral presentation into the student competition -- a great resume builder for the winners and good experience for everyone involved. Students can take advantage of highly discounted conference registration rates.
