Welcome to our 2017 Latornell Conservation SymposiumThis year Canada celebrates its 150th birthday, and to reflect that, the theme for the 2017 Latornell Symposium is Succession. In the environmental field, we all identify succession with natural or ecological succession as one species changes to another species in a field or forest, or a particular area of habitat. But we also see succession in other aspects of our industry: succession of employees as they enhance their knowledge, and fill the roles of retiring colleagues; policy and legislation that evolves over time with new research and new realities; and changing attitudes of the public, policy makers, and scientists that lead to changing efforts of protection, or enjoyment. These are all real aspects of succession that we are seeing in our daily work, and this year for Latornell we want to explore and share them.
We hope people respond enthusiastically to our call for presentations. Check out our website latornell.ca and newsletter for more details on the wide range of Succession topics we are hoping to include at the symposium. Submit your proposals via the website. We’re looking for presentations, workshops, training, and tour proposals.
