Description

DESCRIPTION

The Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) Ontario Network is hosting a FREE one-day Youth Workshop on Invasive Species (flora & fauna) Research & Resource Management in Ontario. This event is geared toward students and young professionals in the Sudbury and surrounding regions.

This workshop will cover emerging research that is helping us better understand invasive species and their impacts on Ontario’s natural history. Student representatives from local Universities and Colleges are invited to take part in this one-day free workshop that has been sponsored by the EDRR Network of Ontario.
Participants will have the opportunity to network with environmental professionals and peers from other institutions, studying similar issues, and share experiences gained from working on a range of invasive species found in Ontario.

THIS EVENT WILL.....

  • Help you to learn and familiarize yourself with invasive species that are present and threatening Ontario (identification, biology and impacts)

  • Cover current invasive species research and management from across the province

  • Provide an opportunity to network with and learn about the careers of researchers and resource managers in the environmental science, biology and natural resource management fields

  • Provide FREE LUNCH AND REFRESHMENTS AT NO COST to attendees!
