Apply for a Latornell Grant - Deadline September 18th, 2015

Did you know that the proceeds from our legendary silent auction go to our Grant program? The Latornell Grant was established in memory of A.D. Latornell to provide support for students and active members of the conservation community so that they may attend the annual Symposium.

Grant program information and the application form are now available online and a number of Three Day and One Day grants are up for grabs! The application deadline for 2015 grants is September 18th.

To learn more about eligibility requirements and how to apply, visit our Grant Program webpage.

Support Our Silent Auction

The Latornell 2015 Silent Auction has been an exciting event at the annual Symposium for many years! Each year dozens of goodies including sporting event tickets, yummy treats, fun gift baskets, gift cards, amazing art, and more are donated to the event by generous delegates and organizations from Ontario’s conservation community. All of the proceeds from this event go supporting the Latornell Grant Program.

Do you have an item that you’d like to donate? Contact Alison Rutka (Forests Ontario) via email at to donate or ask questions! Thank you for your support!
