Thought this might interest some.

The Northeast Natural History Conference will be held at the 
State Plaza Convention Center in Albany, NY on April 20-21, 2006. The 
conference is a forum for researchers to present current information 
on the varied aspects of natural history for the Northeastern United 
States and adjacent Canada. In addition to updating colleagues on 
current research, the Northeast Natural History Conference can serve 
as a forum to identify research needs, foster friendships, and 
rekindle interest in natural history by bringing people with diverse 
backgrounds together. The program includes a keynote speaker, paper 
and poster sessions, an illustrator's gallery, book market and a banquet.

Attendance at the last conference in 2004 was over 300 people, with 
92 oral presentations and 54 poster presentations. We expect this 
year's Northeast Natural History Conference to be an even bigger event.
