Conservation Connections: Creating Pathways to Sustainability
72nd International Annual Conference
July 30 - August 2
The 72nd International Annual Conference focused on an important trait that sets the SWCS annual conference apart from others: the number of disciplines who come together to share information, network, and form connections to forge best practices in soil and water conservation. The conference provided a forum for interdisciplinary discussions that are essential to the success of conservation, a field that depends upon understanding relationships and interconnectedness.
The 2017 conference had the Society’s largest attendance since 2004 with over 500 participants making conservation connections. The conference program included over 150 oral presentations and symposia, in addition to 70 poster presentations. Specialty topics included a focus on Field to Watershed: Connecting Local Scale Influence with Larger Scale Significance, Benefits and Challenges of Public and Private Partnerships, and Extreme Weather and Its Impact on Conservation.
