Longleaf Biennial Conference
The Biennial Longleaf Conference, hosted by The Longleaf Alliance, is a regional conference focused on the restoration and conservation of the longleaf ecosystem that once dominated the landscape within the southeastern United States. The conference provides the opportunity for people from all over the Southeast to get together, share, learn, and celebrate longleaf. It also serves as a rallying spot for several other organizations and government agencies seeking to stage additional events in order to better collaborate on the conference topics.
The Call for Proposals for the 14th Biennial Longleaf Conference is open! We are accepting proposals to support the conference's theme of Rekindling Our Connections and the four conference tracts:
+ Branching Out – Exchanging strategies and resources to reach new audiences.
+ Strong Roots That Bind – Work addressing groundcover & natural communities
+ Pyrodiversity Enkindles Biodiversity™ – Intersection of fire & ecosystem diversity including research, implementation, & social considerations
+ Tomorrow’s Forest – Innovative solutions, management opportunities, & economic considerations to conserve working forests while supporting climate resiliency
The Call for Proposals includes *NEW* content debuting at the 2022 Conference. In addition to presentations and posters, we are also seeking submissions for fire whirls (10 min talks), media content, panel discussions, working groups, concurrent meetings, and sponsored social activities.
