2019 Natural Areas Conference Venue and Date Chosen

Mark your calendar for the 2019 Natural Areas Conference in Pittsburgh, PA October 8-10! Our 46th conference will take place at the Pittsburgh Sheraton, which is right on the waterfront at the place where the three rivers of Pittsburgh - the Monongahela, the Allegheny, and the Ohio - come together. Our theme is At the Water's Edge - Managing our Land and Water in a Changing Landscape. This event will focus on providing access to cutting-edge information, emerging management techniques, and science-based practices for natural areas practitioners. As you can see, the views are spectacular - and scores of diverse natural areas are only a short drive away. We're excited to be partnering with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation,  and the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program for this event, and we will be sending out more information soon!
