NAA Behind the Scenes
2018 Board Retreat and Strategic Planning in the Hills of Gold
With the help of the Central Indiana Land Trust (CILTI) and The Nature Conservancy – Indiana, about 20 NAA Board and staff members hiked into some of the most beautiful areas of the Hills of Gold to take inspiration from natural areas while charting the organization’s next five years.

2019 NAA Webinar Series Begins! Register for our February 20 Pollinator Management Webinar
Our first webinar in the new year is a joint effort. Based on their popular talks at the 2018 Natural Areas Conference in October, Vicki Wojcik of the Pollinator Partnership and Rich Hatfield of the Xerces Society will present The Role of Honey Bees in Natural Areas - A Conversation.
Vicki will speak on "Flora Resource Competition Between Honey Bees and Wild Bees: Is There Clear Evidence and Can We Guide Management and Conservation?" and Rich will speak on "Honey Bees in the Pollination Networks of Natural Areas? -- An Overview and Best Management Practices."
We want to thank everyone who chose to donate to the Natural Areas Association over the last year.
We couldn't do it without you.
We need your investment, because the cost of providing this community with all of the tools, information and events we do far outstrips what we take in from membership or registration costs. Your donations ensure that membership and programming is still accessible, and allows us to provide support to the wider natural areas professional community.
