The Western Canada Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration announces plans for a 2018 conference!
The conference is set to take place in beautiful British Columbia, atop Burnaby Mountain in February 2018. The conference will draw approximately 400 attendees, including industry professionals, government officials, local practitioners, and more.
The theme for this conference is Restoration for Resilience: Ecological Restoration in the 21st Century. Resilience is a hot topic in restoration, igniting discussions in areas such as novel ecosystems and industrial development, the use of traditional ecological knowledge in restoration practice, among others. Exploring this theme, we hope to engage a broad and diverse audience and spark conversations sure to shape and/or inform restoration in Western Canada, and beyond, moving forward.
Conference planning is well underway, with the First Call for Proposals planned for a mid-April distribution. Continue to visit our website as more information becomes available!
We look forward to seeing you in February 2018!
