NCPTT invites you to participate in "Science for Parks, Parks for
Science: the Next Century," a unique science and technology summit
organized and hosted by the University of California, Berkeley.  The
two-and-a-half day summit will focus on state-of-the-science
research conducted by natural and cultural resources scientist,
managers, and practitioners. The summit will be held on March 25-27,
2015 at UC Berkeley.  The unique partnership between UC Berkeley,
the National Park Service and the National Geographic Society to
bring you this summit grows out of a meeting 100 years earlier that
helped launch the National Park Service.

The focus of the meeting is to bring together visionary scientists
to envision and contribute to strategies for science in parks and
science using parks for the coming decades.

Distinguished plenary speakers and panelists include David Ackerly,
Jill Baron, Steven Beissinger, Joel Berger, Ruth DeFries, Thomas
Dietz, Josh Donlan, Holly Doremus, Ernesto Enkerlin-Hoeflich, Denis
Galvin, David Graber, Jane Lubchenco, Gary Machlis, George Miller,
Hugh Possingham, Jedediah Purdy, Nina Roberts, Mark Schwartz, Daniel
Simberloff, Monica Turner, and Jennifer Wolch.

It is critical to the future of preservation science in the National
Park Service to be represented and NCPTT encourages you to submit to
the contributed oral presentations and poster sessions.  The
deadline for abstracts is November 1, 2014.  Click here to submit an
