Conservation Conversations – SCB Toronto Journal Club April 2017

In April, the SCB-TO journal club will focus our discussion around conservation activities in Ontario. In Leslie Sauer’s paper, “Bring Back The Forests,” several key strategies are put forward to guide forest restoration efforts. In the years since the publication of this article, have we adequately implemented these concepts to protect what remains of the Carolinian forest? Given the increased demands on our local landscapes, are we taking the appropriate actions to conserve our woodlands? Furthermore, what are your thoughts about the current priorities outlined in the Ontario Premier’s Environment and Climate Change Mandate?

All are welcome, including graduate students, undergraduates, conservation professionals, and members of the public.

April 6th 6:00 – 7:00pm. Article discussion, with casual discussion and socializing at the GSU pub to follow. Click here to RSVP.
