The annual regional conference, held in a different New England state each year, is NEC-NALMS' main activity each year, and how we engage our members and provide information and an exchange of ideas. Please consider sharing your ideas by presenting a workshop, presentation or poster at this year's conference.

The 2014 New England Waters Conference
will be hosted by the Connecticut Federation of Lakes June 13 & 14, 2014, at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. With the theme of "Green Ideas for Blue Lakes" we are focusing on what homeowners and lake users can do to protect the lakes they love. Bob Kirschner,  Director of Restoration Ecology, Chicago Botanic Garden, will share landscaping issues that are lake friendly, solve real problems AND look great great!

PDF version of the 2014 Program is now available below!

Conference Format:

Interactive, hands on workshops offered on Friday, followed by the NEC-NALMS annual meeting, and an optional dinner.  Saturday features technical sessions focused on a variety of topics of interest to volunteer monitors, lakeshore residents and lake management professionals.

Each year we strive to provide an outstanding opportunity to share information about volunteer monitoring across local, state and even national borders, understanding our lakes today by looking at their pasts, and getting a handle on the changes we can expect. Please come ready to share your experiences and learn with and from the experts!
