Currents of Change: Inspiring, Creating, Transforming
Many of today’s economic, environmental, and social challenges are impacting the health of Ontario’s natural resources and creating the need for us to re-think traditional approaches. To ensure healthy watersheds and people, we need to continue to look forward, adapt and find innovative new ways to protect our critical natural resources.

At this year’s Latornell Conservation Symposium, we’re asking delegates to share their research and experiences in order to refresh, motivate and inspire the shifts we need to make in order to transform our approaches and match the pace at which our challenges change. All on a tight budget, of course.

The 2019 Symposium takes place November 19, 20 and 21, 2019 at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Conference Centre in Alliston, Ontario.
