Did you know there are over 100 different conservation organizations in the Capital Region alone? Habitat Acquisition Trust has been bringing them together since 2001.
Representatives from many of those organizations will be at the 14th Conservation Connection Forum on Thursday at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, 505 Quayle Rd.
The forum facilitates co-operation and communication among the many organizations, governments and individuals working on environmental stewardship and conservation projects in our region.
This year the forum will feature experts speaking on the themes of large-scale conservation efforts from different wildlife perspectives, collaborative approaches, and conservation planning tools and solutions. The speakers will be followed by a facilitated group discussion and nature walks focused on ethnobotany and stewardship for species at risk.
The conference portion of the day is followed by an evening benefit banquet, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Rick Kool of Royal Roads University.
Registration for the Conservation Connection Forum is available online through www.hat.bc.ca, or by calling 250-995-2428.
