The Northeast Association of Environmental Biologists first conference was held in 1977 in Lexington, MA. As it is today, at the time it was seen as a necessity: with so many biologists working in the Northeast for the states and for private consulting firms, it had become apparent that there was a need to organize and meet to discuss common issues in the region and exchange ideas.
Forty years later, NEAEB is stronger than ever. The conference continues to build professional networks and allows for meaningful collaboration. Recent successes have included the Regional Stream Biological Condition Gradient Projects, the Regional Cyanobacteria Project, and Regional Monitoring Networks for Streams and Lakes.
Past NEAEB conference materials, including the presentations for some years, have been saved and stored - you can find them here.
NEAEB has a long and storied history. We want to recognize the contributions of those who have been active in NEAEB leadership since the very earliest conferences in the 1970s. A Legends of NEAEB section is under development - stay tuned!
