Southeastern Prairies Symposium:

Remnants, Conservation, and Working Grasslands

May 14-17, 2012 Mississippi State University, Starkville, MS

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks partnering with Mississippi State University and Wildlife Mississippi will co-host a ymposium for natural resources professionals and scientists involved in the ecology, management, and restoration of southeastern prairie habitats. The primary goal of this symposium is to synthesize effective approaches to prairie restoration and enhancement throughout the region by identifying broad-scale generalities in management practices and biota while recognizing differences at the specific ecosystem level. Three concurrent sessions focusing on management, the natural biota, as well as working grasslands will unite researchers, biologists, and managers from across the southern United States (AL, AR, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX) and increase communication among state, federal, and nongovernmental partners in prairie habitat management.
