    This Year's Topics

    • Reclamation

      Land reclamation is widely understood to be “the process of reconverting disturbed land to its former or other productive uses”. And land restoration is “the process of ecological restoration of a site to a natural landscape and habitat, safe for humans, wildlife, and plant communities”. Responsible project development and long-term land and asset management is a priority in today’s climate for many industries. The Summit covers efficient and cost effective reclamation and restoration planning, stakeholder/landowner outreach and construction best practices.

    Interactive Stations and Live Demonstrations

    Throughout our construction Summit, there will be several interactive stations for you to visit about land reclamation and environmental reclamation. There will be several times throughout the day during which you can go play with certain equipment and somewhere you can see examples of industry topics such as seeding, decompaction, and revegetation. Get a taste of what’s happening in our industry of reclamation. The Summit will also include live equipment demonstrations. The live demonstrations will be an hour each with two demonstrations during the day. One demonstration will be on construction and the other will be on restoration. These live demonstrations are a great way to see our industry topics in action.
