NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer. 

MY SCHEDULE FEATURE: It is not required of you to create a Sched.org account to use this site but if you do so, you’ll be able to use the "My Schedule" feature which allows you to create your own schedule for the conference. Click the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of this page to create a Sched.org account.

Invasive plant species pose a significant threat to the natural diversity of our ecosystem. They impact our native species, including rare, threatened and endangered species. They threaten the use, enjoyment and value of our property and woodlands. Invasive plant species already cover well over one million acres in the United States and continue to increase in population by 8-20% annually. This threat is recognized throughout the Northeast and many federal, state, non-profit and private entities are working to contain and manage these aggressive invaders. GIS is a key tool in this effort. It is pertinent in the planning and approval process with state and federal agencies and it also aids in communicating vital information with landowners, field staff, abuttors and the public at large. In this discussion, The Kenerson Group and Vegetation Control Service, Inc. will outline the process from project proposal through treatment completion.
