Restoring the West Conference 2017: Forest restoration: What's working, what's not?
Oct

to Oct 18

Restoring the West Conference 2017: Forest restoration: What's working, what's not?

Visit conference website. View agenda and speaker line-up.

Forests in the western U.S. have been shaped, and often degraded by, fires, invasive species, pests, climate change, livestock grazing, and logging. Forest managers have taken various approaches to restore these forests, with varying levels of success. This conference will gather leading forest restoration experts to review and suggest techniques that can sustain and restore Interior West forests. Speakers will offer real examples from the field that describe their forest restoration successes (or failures). Our goal is to present useful, practical knowledge that will help managers restore forests across the Interior West. The conference will include two days of plenary sessions, a poster session, and an evening social.

**This year's conference will feature a special Era of Megafires presentation by Paul Hessburg.

2017 Society for Range Management Annual Meeting
Jan
29
to Feb 2

2017 Society for Range Management Annual Meeting

The theme of this year's SRM conference is Red Rock and Rangelands, and it highlights the
juxtaposition of spectacular geology and diverse rangelands in the region around St. George. The southwest corner of Utah is an ecotone at the convergence of three major rangeland regions: the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave. Range management in this region is especially complex due to the high biophysical variability, high concentration of natural wonders and associated recreation activities, and diverse set of stakeholder groups. We especially welcome proposals that highlight the variety of rangeland environments and habitats, multitude of rangeland land-uses, and diversity of people who manage and depend upon rangelands in the southwestern US.
