Spring 2014 Annual Chapter Meeting: Minnesota!
Our 2014 Midwest-Great Lakes Chapter Meeting, Building on the Midwest Legacy of Restoration: Linking Theory and Practice, will be Friday March 28 – Sunday March 30, 2014 at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The Annual Meeting Committee is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will be Dr. Susan Galatowitsch. Dr. Galatowitsch is a Professor and Department Head of the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at the University of Minnesota. Her research has focused on advancing ecological restoration practice through the use of landscape-scale studies and controlled field experiments to understand processes of natural recolonization and to develop revegetation and invasive species control strategies. Additionally, much of her work has focused on research in the prairie pothole wetlands within the agricultural landscapes of the Midwestern United States.
