Submit a Proposal

The Monadnock Region Natural History Conference will feature presentations on a diversity of natural history topics for a general audience, with a focus on conservation research, ecological restoration, and ecological management in the Monadnock Region. This is an opportunity to share your work with others who have an interest in local natural history; make connections with other scientists, land managers, and educators working in the Monadnock Region; and think collaboratively about what’s next for the scientific and conservation community of southwest New Hampshire.


We anticipate sessions on wildlife, biodiversity, wetlands and stream ecology, forest ecology and management, Mount Monadnock, citizen science, climate change, and more. Presentations on social science research that emphasizes connections to natural history in the Monadnock Region will be considered as well.


Proposals for oral presentations and poster presentations are both welcome. Oral presentations will be allotted 15 minutes for presentations and 5 minutes for questions. Oral presentation proposals may be asked to consider a poster presentation instead. Students are especially encouraged to submit proposals. Abstracts should be no longer than 2,500 characters.


Submissions are now closed.
