New Theme Announced for Latornell Conservation Symposium
November 17-19, 2015 at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Convention Centre, Alliston, ON
Weathering Change - Navigating a New Climate
There is no longer a debate about whether or not climate change is happening but rather what actions we can take to navigate the new normal. This year’s Latornell Conservation Symposium will explore the climate change impacts we are seeing in Ontario’s watersheds as well as current and emerging best management practices that are underway or can be used to build environmental, economic and social resilience.
We Are Looking for Your Presentation Ideas!
Deadline: March 30, 2015
