INLS 2022: Maintaining Connections

We have heard from many of you, sharing your gratitude that this group of energetic and dedicated people has kept gathering, even if virtually, until we can all gather again in person. As organizers of INLS, we are equally grateful for all of you who are staying with it--maintaining those connections among all of us who work for the greater good of our natural environment. Our connections mirror the connections we strive to learn about, protect, and preserve in the natural world around us.


We also hear from more and more speakers that their work reveals fragile, delicate, and often only newly recognized connections in nature--between birds and plants, fungi and plants, insects and plants, and of course the world of micro-organisms--subtle relationships that often elude casual human observation. Maintaining these connections before we break them or lose them is now more critical than ever, as pressure on the natural web increases. As Aldo Leopold said, long before most people were paying attention: "If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.” Assume nature has inherent value, at all scales and in all its parts, equally. 


These are the connections we try to explore, explain and maintain through INLS 2022--through our connections with our INLS community.


We look forward to sharing these connections with you.

About 2022

INLS 2022 will be held virtually, Friday, March 4 and Saturday, March 5 in the comfort of your own home or office. We are so excited about the program we have put together this year!

Ongoing concerns about COVID have led us to the conclusion that we should keep the conference virtual for one more year. We hope that our Native Landscape community can embrace this temporary change in format. It did work surprisingly well last year, but we definitely look forward to seeing you all back at Cinemapolis in 2023!


PDH (CEU) registration will be available soon, and is done separately from Symposium registration.Registrants will be able to view the presentations, at your own pace, and earn their Professional Development Hours (PDH) for 3 months after the live conference, until June 21, 2022 (the Summer Solstice).
