Innovative Applied Sciences for Protected Areas’ System Design & Management
Tuesday September 26 – Thursday September 28

Location: Georgian Bay Hotel & Conference Centre, Collingwood                                                     

For 20 years, CASIOPA has organized meetings for professionals and students from private, government, NGO, and academic sectors to learn about the application of science to protected areas management.  We’re making our 20th anniversary something special as the AGM will reflect on the past lessons, examine the state of science in the present, and consider where the next generation of innovators will take us in the future.  We’ve chosen a wonderful venue on the shores of Georgian Bay in early autumn and will be hosting prominent international, national, and provincial plenary speakers. Participants contribute to roundtable discussions and may present their work conference style.  You will have a choice of 3 field trips to spectacular protected areas, enjoy delicious meals, and participate in networking opportunities. The Conference will launch at noon start on day 1, provide terrific plenaries and concurrent contributed sessions, the field trips, and then conclude mid-afternoon on day 3 with a clear vision for future research and management.


Registration CLOSED 18 September (submission deadline for F&B orders)
