NCPTT invites you to participate in “Science for Parks, Parks for Science: the Next Century,” a unique science and technology summit organized and hosted by the University of California, Berkeley. The two-and-a-half day summit will focus on state-of-the-science research conducted by natural and cultural resources scientist, managers, and practitioners. The summit will be held on March 25-27, 2015 at UC Berkeley. The unique partnership between UC Berkeley, the National Park Service and the National Geographic Society to bring you this summit grows out of a meeting 100 years earlier that helped launch the National Park Service.
The focus of the meeting is to bring together visionary scientists to envision and contribute to strategies for science in parks and science using parks for the coming decades. Distinguished plenary speakers and panelists include David Ackerly, Jill Baron, Steven Beissinger, Joel Berger, Ruth DeFries, Thomas Dietz, Josh Donlan, Holly Doremus, Ernesto Enkerlin-Hoeflich, Denis Galvin, David Graber, Jane Lubchenco, Gary Machlis, George Miller, Hugh Possingham, Jedediah Purdy, Nina Roberts, Mark Schwartz, Daniel Simberloff, Monica Turner, & Jennifer Wolch.
It is critical to the future of preservation science in the National Park Service to be represented and NCPTT encourages you to submit to the contributed oral presentations and poster sessions. The deadline for abstracts is November 1, 2014. Click here to submit an abstract.
