The SERR conference

The Southeastern Recreation Research (SERR) Conference provides an exceptional opportunity for researchers and managers within the parks, recreation and amenity management system fields to learn about and discuss each other's projects, research findings, and regional needs. The conference focus is on outdoor-based leisure, recreation and tourism research; however, other topics are welcome if they have a direct link to this focus. The conference setting supports both formal presentations and informal discussions in a relaxed setting.
