MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, WY – Abstract submissions and registration are now open for the 14th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The deadline for abstracts is April 30, 2018. Registration will remain open until the conference fills.
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.
Hosted by Yellowstone Forever, the conference takes place September 11 to 14, 2018 in Big Sky, Montana. To learn more, register, or submit an abstract, visittrackingthehumanfootprint2018.org. Conference staff may be reached at yell_conference@nps.gov or by phone at 307-344-2260.
