Third National Native Seed Conference

CPNPP Annual Meeting
April 17, 2015 8am-noon; Eldorado Hotel, Santa Fe, NM

The 2014 CPNPP Annual Science Meeting was held in May 2014 at the University of Utah's Rio Mesa Research Center in eastern Utah. A glorious setting with brand new tent cabins and meeting room complemented intellectual discussions on research results and future directions. Many thanks to Rio Mesa’s Director Zach Lundeen and manager Hau Quan Trong for making the meeting possible and to Troy Wood and Andrea Kramer for coordinating. Presentations & notes forthcoming.

2014 Colorado Plateau Native Plant Program (CPNPP) Annual Meeting was held in Grand Junction, CO April 8 – 10. This was a great conference with a lot of dynamic discussion and interaction. Much appreciation goes to Troy Wood and Andrea Kramer (who stood in for retired CPNPP Coordinator Wayne Padgett) for coordinating the conference and field trip. The agenda and presentations are available here.

12th Biennial Conference of Science and Management on the Colorado Plateau was held at the Du Bois Center on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff September 16-19, 2013. This conference, which occurs every other year, is designed to bring managers and researchers together to discuss management needs and current research associated with both the natural and cultural resources of the Colorado Plateau.

This year’s conference theme was Effects of Rapid Climatic, Social, and Technological Changes on the Colorado Plateau. The Utah State Office of the BLM and the CPNPP joined together to develop a 2 hour symposium at the conference titled Landscape Level Management Approach and Rapid Ecoregional Assessments: A Vision and Tools in the Changing Environment of the Colorado Plateau. We had speakers from the BLM’s Washington Office, Conservation Biology Institute, USGS, and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources among others that discussed the applications associated with the Colorado Plateau Rapid Ecoregional Assessment and followed up with a session in which all speakers joined together to answer questions.
