The overarching theme of the 2018 Native Prairie Restoration and Reclamation Workshop will be "Look to the Future, Learn from the Past". Within this theme, issues in the following areas will be addressed: 
o Long-term Restoration planning and case studies
o Reclamation/Restoration of Riparian Areas
o Restoration of Aquatic, Plant and Wildlife Species at Risk
o Native Seed Producers to Native Seed Users
o Range Health and Soil Remediation. 
o Industry Mitigation for Species at Risk
o Collaborative Efforts for Species at Risk

o Plenary Speakers: Leading experts in the field of restoration and reclamation will share success stories and lessons learned about innovative projects. Speakers will represent industry leaders, landowners, academia, environmental organizations and more. 

o Tradeshow: With the goal of networking and developing sustainable partnerships, native seed producers and users, environmental consulting companies, watershed groups and native plant organizations will have booths and displays available. 
o Poster Session: Innovative research projects about invasive species, endangered species, restoration and reclamation case studies, and native seed research will be on display and presenters available for questions and answer periods. Posters featuring research about greater sage-grouse, piping plovers, Sprague’s pipits, loggerhead shrikes and burrowing owls (or any other species at risk) and their habitat are encouraged.

o Case Studies: An interactive and hands-on exercise about relevant prairie restoration projects will bring perspectives together from all workshop participants. 

o Networking: Extended coffee breaks and a designated networking time allows for everyone involved in prairie restoration to share experiences, lessons learned and new ideas. 

o Banquet: An evening event to celebrate the success and hard work of native prairie restoration and reclamation will occur. This will allow for more networking and time at the poster session and tradeshow. A silent auction fundraiser to raise money for youth environmental programs will also take place. Awards winners of the Native Prairie Stewardship Award and the Native Prairie Restoration/Reclamation Award will be announced.
