Currents of Change – Preliminary Program

Latornell 2019 Preliminary Program (Single Page Spread | Double Page Spread) [will be added prior to registration opening]

Currents of Change – Program at a Glance

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.
