Ecosystem Restoration Conference to Include Mississippi River Basin and Gulf Coast Focus
The biennial Conference on Ecological and Ecosystem Restoration (CEER) will be held this year in New Orleans, Louisiana from July 28 through August 1, and will include a particular focus on ecosystem restoration in the Mississippi River Basin and the Louisiana coast. CEER is a joint effort of the National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration and the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), which are collaborating to produce the conference covering restoration topics relevant to private sector, government, and non-profit restoration constituents throughout the country. While the conference program focuses on the U.S., attendees and presenters will represent restoration projects and research occurring worldwide.
Mississippi River Basin- and Louisiana coastal-related conference topics will include "The Mississippi River - A Strategic Resource," "Rivers, Streams, and Lakes Ecosystem Restoration," and "Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration."
Blog contributor Mark Gorman, a member of the CEER 2014 Program Committee, and a pro-tem officer for the newly-formed Large Scale Ecosystem Restoration Section of SER, and Colin Wellenkamp, Director of the Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative, will be in attendance at the CEER 2014 event, as will many other River Basin stakeholders.
