Québec RE3 Conference 2023

This is a joint conference between the Society for Ecological Restoration – Eastern Canada (SER-EC) and the Canadian Land Reclamation Association (CLRA) from June 11th to 15th, 2023, at the third year of the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030). The organizers are also cooperating with the Ontario chapter of SER (SER-O), the Midwest Great Lakes Chapter of SER (SER-MWGL) the Canadian chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS Canada), the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), the International Peatland Society (IPS) and the American Society of Reclamation Sciences (ASRS) to provide an enlarged scientific and field program.

The proposed theme of the conference for 2023 is “From Reclaiming to Restoring and Rewilding”. It aims to stimulate discussions about the range of environmental management approaches advocated by the hosting societies. Reclaiming is recognized and practiced by many industries, including mining and petrol extraction. Restoring is recognized most broadly around the world, and has been the main focus of SER. Rewilding, or bringing back to nature, allows us to dream. These terms also imply ideas of industry, science, practice, society and imagination. They run from the practical to the creative.
