Join us and an exciting group of speakers for the first ever interdisciplinary conference to address the emergence of community forests and initiatives to promote them throughout Canada. The conference will provide a forum to advance community-based forest management (CBFM) as a growing model for collaborative decision-making and development, and help establish a national community forest network where researchers, practitioners, government representatives, community members and others can meet to explore and share relevant experiences, resources and tools.
Registration opens Oct. 1, 2012. For details see http://noscp.ca/
