Announcing the 2017 Northeast Natural History Conference

First time in Connecticut! In line with our long-standing goal of moving the conference throughout the Northeast, we are excited to have found the Radisson Hotel Cromwell, which promises to be a wonderful conference facility centrally located just south of Hartford and easily accessible from throughout the region.

As with last year's conference, it has been scheduled over a weekend to minimize conflicts with work and class schedules, and the hotel venue offers the convenience of staying overnight right on site with complimentary parking for room guests, thereby eliminating any driving or parking hassles while at the conference, plus all of the amenities you would expect from a fine hotel.

Join us this upcoming April 21st–23rd for the 17th 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.
