Thank you for a tremendous 25th anniversary conference! It was great to spend time with over 350 land managers, researchers, and conservationists amid the granite of the Sierra Nevada! We celebrated in style November 2-5 at the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite.

social hour
A great opportunity to network, learn and celebrate!

Special sessions focused on park stewardship in honor of the National Park Service's Centennial, including an opening plenary featuring talks by Jan van Wagtendonk, longtime scientist from Yosemite National Park, and Terri Hogan, the national coordinator for NPS invasive plant programs. Natural resource managers discussed how invasive plant control can find common ground with protection of cultural resources, fire protection, and wilderness designation. And of course lots of talks and posters on the latest in research and management approaches, discussion groups on hot topics, trainings to help us do our work better, and the opportunity to learn from the amazing network of land stewards in California.

Wednesday featured several trainings during the day and the DPR Laws and Regulations session in the evening. The main conference sessions took place all day Thursday and Friday, with our 25th anniversary banquet Thursday night. Field trips on Saturday showed off informative invasive plant management efforts in the region.
