Good Afternoon,

Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation and partners are organizing a Species At Risk (SAR) Stewardship Workshop on December 3rd to 5th, 2009 at the Old Orchard Inn & Spa, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This workshop will provide the opportunity for learning and information sharing between policy makers, scientists, community groups, environmental managers, academia and other individuals interested in the recovery of SAR in Atlantic Canada. The SAR Stewardship Workshop will have both poster and oral presentations, with keynote speakers. Networking and discussion groups are also vital components of the 2009 workshop, with one focus being the improvement of the Habitat Stewardship Program (HSP). 

October 30th, 2009 is the deadline for submitting abstracts to the SAR Stewardship Workshop. Workshop themes include Habitat Stewardship Program, Capacity Building during Stewardship Opportunities, Issues surrounding Critical Habitat, Role of Invasive Species with regards to Species at Risk, Native/Aboriginal Involvement in Species at Risk Stewardship, Roles and Responsibilities of Recovery Teams and Breaking the Barrier: Better Communications between all Stakeholders. Please email abstracts to nicolle at coastalaction.org and ensure the phrase “Abstract Submission” is in the subject line of the email.
