Annual Meeting

Québec RE3 Conference

Québec City, Canada | June 7 - 11, 2020

The Québec RE3 Conference, a joint conference between the Canadian Land Reclamation Association (CLRA), the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) and the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS), will be held in Québec City from June 7-11, 2020, at the dawn of the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030).

The proposed conference theme is From Reclaiming to Restoring and Rewilding. It aims to stimulate discussions about the range of environmental management approaches advocated by the three hosting societies. Reclaiming is recognized and practiced by many industries, including mining and petrol extraction. Restoring is recognized most broadly around the world, and has been the main focus of SER. Rewilding, or bringing back to nature, allows us to dream. These terms also imply ideas of industry, science, practice, society and imagination. They run from the practical to the creative.
