[PCA] CONFERENCE: Biodiversity without Boundaries (Lied Lodge, NE)

This would be a very useful direction for an east coast/northeast conference
to take, where we are grappling with early successional habitat restoration
and the maintenance of biodiversity of native species. We could all benefit
from sharing successes and failures, and thoughts that would bridge plant
ecology, soil science, soil microbes, habitat restoration and landscaping

Just putting it out there for any enterprising organization...
