The Annual Conference On Ecosystems Restoration and Creation began in 1973 as a small regional conference targeted at the emerging art and science community which was concerned with environmental restoration. It began as part of a federally funded program administered by Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Florida. Its focus was centered primarily on applied restoration and creation of coastal wetlands.
Beginning in 1979, the conference expanded its scope to include all wetlands, not just coastal, and the name was changed to The Annual Conference On Wetlands Restoration and Creation. Since that time, interest in restoration increased world-wide to include total ecological restoration. To address this increased interest in all areas of ecological restoration, the conference name was again changed in 1995 to The Annual Conference On Ecosystems Restoration and Creation.
The UW-Madison Libraries digital collections include the annual conference proceedings from 1979 to date, but exclude the proceedings from the 1st through 5th conferences when the focus was limited to coastal wetlands
