73rd Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) International Annual Conference 2018

Sun, 29 Jul 2018 – Wed, 01 Aug 2018

Theme: Culture, Climate, and Conservation

New Mexico’s rich culture and diverse landscape makes it the prime location to celebrate the 73rd SWCS International Annual Conference theme, Culture, Climate, and Conservation.

The research to be shared and stories to be told from across the nation will fit right into this location where conservation spans resource concerns, cultures, and landscapes. In addition to learning about some of the management challenges and partnership opportunities that face ecosystems worldwide, participants will experience the vibrant culture of New Mexico through Local Forum and Flavor event, witness conservation efforts first-hand through tours, and will hear from leading speakers in the conservation field. Specialty tracks that will focus on rangeland and forest restoration as well as the use of technology to advance conservation will also be offered at this year’s conference. Collectively, all of these areas of focus will provide a forum for conservation professionals from around the world to come together to discuss successes and challenges, combat shared obstacles, and accelerate conservation efforts.
