Workshops and Conferences

In the late 1980s, Weyerhaeuser Corporation sought to stimulate interest in restoring AWC to former sites in eastern North Carolina.  Along with this effort, workshops were initiated where people could share information concerning the ecology, restoration, and management of AWC.  These meetings grew in attendance, and were called symposia beginning in 1997.   Since that time, meetings have been held at 2- and 3-year intervals to present results of studies related to all aspects of AWC ecology, management, restoration, growth and yield, and nursery production.  Workshops and symposia also included field trips.  Until now, Proceedings of these workshops and meetings have not been available in a single place.  To facilitate access to the historical record, workshops and symposia are listed below, including links to handouts or Proceedings.  The next conference is tentatively scheduled for 2015 in Massachusetts.
