2023 Natural Areas Conference

Thank you for your interest in the 2023 Natural Areas Conference (NAC23)! 

The Fall 2023 Natural Areas Conference will be a One-Day Virtual Event and more information about the virtual NAC23 will be posted here very soon!

We wish we could be in person for the NAC this year.   It was such a joy to gather our community of natural areas practitioners in Duluth, MN during September 2022. That said, sometimes an organization needs to take some time to calibrate - and that is what NAA will do in connection to the Natural Areas Conference. 

NAA’s goal is to be indispensable for those who steward natural areas. To create a single source where you can conveniently and affordably access reliable science and quality programming wherever you are located, wherever you are in your career, and wherever you are in your practice. 

Following an in-depth strategic planning effort, NAA determined that the needs of the natural areas stakeholder community are changing, and so are the economics of large in person events. As such, it was time to develop an updated conference business and program delivery model to better serve all of you and our organization. 

The in-person Natural Areas Conference will be back - better than ever - during Fall 2024!

Check back here soon - more details will be posted about both the 2023 Natural Areas Conference One-Day Virtual Event & the 2024 Natural Areas Conference - In person!


Join the people who protect and manage our natural areas.
