The Natural History Institute is a catalyst and “thought leader”

…convening national and regional gatherings and working groups of interested, concerned people to delve deeply into specific topics, to address particular problems, and find solutions and map strategies.

Gatherings range in size from a dozen to over a hundred participants.

One example is: The Importance of Field Studies in Biology Education (funded by the National Science Foundation).

Our most recent confluence, Reciprocal Healing: Nature, Health, and Wild Vitalitywas held November 5-8, 2019.
