How to combine expertise across the board is the subject of the upcoming 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

And the program committee is looking for ideas and papers on how to combine environmental, disciplinary and jurisdictional boundaries to produce a healthier Yellowstone ecosystem.

The goal is to get scientists, managers and other decision makers together and blend their skills to help guarantee the future of the park.

It will be held October 6 – 8, 2014 in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming.

Conference registration begins in early June.
