State Natural Areas Program (SNAP) Roundtable - STATE REPORTS
State Natural Areas Programs (SNAP) were among the first entities to protect natural areas in North America. For over 50 years, NAA has fostered a state agency programs community where practitioners and academics could share information, techniques, methodologies, good science and even moral support. NAA knows that collaboration is essential to the preservation of natural areas, and that it is important that colleagues become resources to each other.
The 2022 SNAP Roundtable - State Program Reports will be in-person, and participation in the roundtable is open to everyone attending the 2022 Natural Areas Conference, September 6-9, in Duluth, MN. State Natural Areas Program State Reports are an opportunity for practitioners to share some highlights, challenges, and achievements with people who understand this important work. ANYONE WHO WISHES TO PRESENT A STATE REPORT MUST SUBMIT A PRE-RECORDED PRESENTATION IN ADVANCE. Pre-recorded reports will ensure maximum time for discussion and information-sharing.
Check out the SNAP State Report Guidelines. The deadline for pre-recorded state reports is Friday, August 26.
What is a Pre-Recorded State Natural Areas Program State Report?
A pre-recorded State Program Report is a five minute, pre-recorded, video that offers a brief overview of your state program including size and scope, as well as some of the highlights and challenges faced. (Please see the suggested PowerPoint Template Outline below.) Following each presentation there will be a short time for Q&A, and an Open Discussion segment of the meeting at the end. All pre-recorded videos must be submitted by Friday, August 26.
