Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology (CMI) will be holding their Annual Researchers’ Forum on Friday, September 28 (9am – ~5pm) in Nakusp. This event is a great opportunity to get together in an informal way to catch up on ecological news in SE BC.
People are encouraged to submit an idea for a poster, talk (15-20 mins), or a field trip. There is no theme/topic for the forum; if someone has an update on a project such as local research, field trials, new initiatives in southeastern British Columbia, etc., we would love to hear about it! The idea is to have presentations from the morning-early afternoon with field trips in the afternoon. Deadline for presentation submissions is August 28.
More info on the event, to register, and how to submit a proposal can be found here:
The cost is $40+tax for everyone (presenters and attendees alike) and includes refreshments, lunch and field trips.
