Madrean Conference 2018
May 14 @ 8:00 am – May 18 @ 5:00 pm
Back by popular demand, this will be the fourth symposium on the biologically rich Sky Islands of southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico, and adjacent Mexico.
The Biodiversity and Management of the Madrean Archipelago Conference (known as the Madrean Conference), is the premier regional event for sharing science and building collaboration. The binational Madrean Archipelago, or Sky Island region, is recognized for its unique biological diversity, natural beauty, and cultural heritage.
The 2018 conference will highlight the current state of knowledge about the unique natural resources and human communities of the Sky Island region and seek to advance management practices for maintaining those resources now and into the future by fostering collaboration and partnerships across the region.
The Conference includes opportunities for professional development through formal workshops, moderated symposium, field visits, practitioner presentations, and informal exchange of information all at a single venue.
Who Should Attend
We encourage the participation of researchers, partners in resource stewardship, land managers, educators and students, government officials, consultants, and the interested public from both sides of the border to examine, discuss, and celebrate the Madrean Archipelago. The event will feature invited and contributed presentations, interactive discussions and learning sessions, poster presentations, field trips, and social events.
