2017 National Native Seed Conference

February 13-16, 2017

The conference will be organized largely around the goals and objectives of the National Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration. We recognize that not all proposals fit neatly within the structure of the National Seed Strategy, however, and welcome such proposals as long as they are relevant to the selection, production, and use of native plant material. Indicate the most appropriate category as part of the proposal submission process (you may select more than one).
