Better Environmental Management Through Monitoring 2015

Feb 17 2015 - 8:00am - 2:00pm

You’re invited to the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute’s (ABMI) 2nd annual Speakers' Series “Better Environmental Management Through Monitoring 2015”!

Join the ABMI and emcee Brian Keating (host of Going Wild!) for an engaging series of presentations and discussion at the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences lecture theatre at the University of Alberta.

The ABMI is a leader in biodiversity monitoring. The ABMI monitors and reports on the status and trend of Alberta’s species, habitat, and human footprint across the province. To demonstrate the use of biodiversity data in environmental management and land-use decisions, the ABMI also has an active research and development program.

This event will introduce you to the activities and outcomes of all of the ABMI's capacity areas which encompass biodiversity monitoring protocol development, geospatial analyses and mapping, taxonomic research, ecosystem service assessment, reclamation monitoring, and more. Speakers will present the state-of-the-science, related products and services, and their value to Alberta’s land-use and natural resource managers.

Posters will also be displayed throughout the event. Registration begins at 8:00 AM, with formal proceedings between 8:45 AM-2:00 PM. Continental breakfast and lunch will be served. Ticket parking is available outside the lecture theatre, as well as meter parking on Saskatchewan Drive.

Please pre-register for this free event so that we can plan for catering. We welcome additional guests. Please forward this invitation to others who may be interested.
