The 14th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem will be held September 11-14, 2018. Registration is now open (limit 350 participants).

Since 1991 the Biennial Scientific Conference has brought together scientists, students, academics, land managers, and the general public to build relationships and protect treasured public lands for future generations. This year’s conference theme, Tracking the Human Footprint, focuses on the human experience and the role scientific research and communication will play in shaping future management of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Conference presentations will be grouped around topics like human and wildlife movement patterns, cultural resources protection and education, ecosystem economics and tourism, communication and outreach, ecosystem stressors and ecological restoration, partnerships and collaboration, as well as recreation and the urban interface. Environmental economist Dr. Ray Rasker will deliver the keynote address.

Other speakers on the docket include scientist/conservationist Dr. Jodi Hilty (Superintendents’ International Lecture), conservation biologist Dr. Joel Berger (A. Starker Leopold Lecture) and fire expert Stephen J. Pyne (Aubrey L. Haines Lecture).
