2021 Natural Areas Conference

2021 Natural Areas Conference, Duluth, MN Rescheduled to September 6 – 8, 2022

The Duluth, MN natural areas are not to be missed. Duluth’s location on the shore of Lake Superior with access to boreal and hardwood forest, extensive lakes, bogs and wetlands, savanna, and upland prairie, can only be fully appreciated in-person. 

Given the continued pervasiveness of the pandemic, the prohibition on travel for federal, state, academic and private industry, and the limits of a virtual event to fully realize the goals of the conference to support the community of natural areas professionals through science-based stewardship which includes collaboration and networking, the leadership of NAA and our partners in Duluth have agreed to move the conference to 2022. Mark your calendars and think about submitting a proposal to participate in the conference agenda!

What does that mean for 2021? 

While NAA will not host a traditional Natural Areas Conference during 2021, our team is hard at work to develop quality programming and create opportunities to connect and collaborate in connection to relevant and timely issues facing our natural areas. 

Stay tuned for more information!
