The conference will take place on March 1 at the Astoria Event Center in Dickinson, North Dakota. The conference begins with registration at 7:30 a.m. and the first session at 8 a.m.

The conference will include a general session focusing on the challenges of reclamation during drought, as well as breakout sessions on land disturbance and new approaches to reclamation. The conference will also feature a trade show.
“The success of reclamation depends on several factors, including the practices selected that influence the effectiveness of reclamation,” says Miranda Meehan, Livestock Environmental Management Specialist at University of Washington Extension. North Dakota State (NDSU). “If the best practices are not selected for a site, a greater investment of time and money will be required to successfully remediate.”
“While knowledge exchange has changed dramatically in recent years, the need for research-based information continues,” says Tom DeSutter, professor of soil science at NDSU. “The North Dakota Reclamation Conference is a wonderful event where landowners and representatives from the energy industry, government agencies and universities can discuss optimal strategies to remediate, reclaim and/or restore land and water. “
NDSU Extension, Dickinson State University, Society for Range Management, United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality, and BKS Environmental are hosting the event.
