Once downtown, I registered at the conference and submitted my presentation to be readied for my meeting room. The halls were filled with people excited to finally be here including myself! I overheard a conversation and I share the sentiment: what an opportunity to be surrounded by people all working toward the same goals of ecological restoration. We each have our own restoration stories and here we get to share our successes and challenges with hundreds of other practitioners. I look forward to hearing all about these stories throughout the week.
My presentation takes place on Monday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30pm. Wish me luck!
