Announcing the Northeast Natural History Conference 2015
Back in Springfield! Impressed with the Sheraton Springfield Hotel as a wonderful conference facility and western Massachussets as a central location within reasonable travel distance to so many institutions and organizations focused on natural history research, we are returning there for the 2015 NENHC.
Join us for the 15th Northeast Natural History Conference (NENHC). This conference promises again to be the largest regional forum for researchers, natural resource managers, students, and naturalists to present current information on the varied aspects of applied field biology (freshwater, marine, and terrestrial) and natural history for the Northeastern United States and adjacent Canada. It will serve as a premier venue to identify research and management needs, foster friendships and collegial relationships, and encourage a greater region-wide interest in natural history by bringing people with diverse backgrounds together.
The upcoming NENHC already has the following 18 confirmed sessions. We welcome proposals for additional sessions.
If you would like to give an oral presentation in one of the following sessions, please contact the session organizer. Their contact information can be found on the sessions web page.
