Announcing the 2019 Northeast Natural History Conference

Back in Springfield! Impressed with the Sheraton Springfield Hotel as a wonderful conference facility and western Massachussets as a central location within reasonable travel distance to so many institutions and organizations focused on natural history research, we are returning there for the 2019 NENHC.

Join us this upcoming April 12th–14th for the 19th Northeast Natural History Conference (NENHC). This conference promises again to be the largest regional forum for researchers, natural resource managers, students, and naturalists to present current information on the varied aspects of applied field biology (freshwater, marine, and terrestrial) and natural history for the Northeastern United States and adjacent Canada. It will serve as a premier venue to identify research and management needs, foster friendships and collegial relationships, and encourage a greater region-wide interest in natural history by bringing people with diverse backgrounds together.
