At The Water's Edge: Managing Our Land And Water In A Changing Landscape

Mark your calendar for the 2019 Natural Areas Conference (NAC), which will be hosted by the Natural Areas Association (NAA) and held at the Pittsburgh Sheraton, right on the waterfront at the place where the three rivers of Pittsburgh – the Monongahela, the Allegheny, and the Ohio – come together. The views are spectacular, and scores of diverse natural areas are only a short drive away. This event will focus on providing access to cutting-edge information, emerging management techniques, and science-based practices for natural areas practitioners – and the crucial interactions between healthy land and water.

Who Attends?

The conference typically draws 350-600 attendees in the natural areas professional community.
