Our water program, Living Lakes Canada, is co-hosting the 36th International Symposium of the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) in Banff from November 1-4, 2016. The theme of this year’s symposium is Science to Stewardship: Balancing Economic Growth with Lake Sustainability.
There may be no locale more appropriate to host a discussion on the impact of development on natural spaces than Banff National Park, Alberta. Established in 1885, Banff is Canada’s first national park. Hosting millions of visitors annually, Banff exemplifies the need for a sustainable balance between economic development and conservation. Alberta has undergone significant landscape change during the last hundred years. Intact ecosystems have been altered by rapid population growth and a thriving natural resource-based economy. We invite you to join us at the 2016 NALMS Symposium to help us celebrate, explore the area, and engage in discussions about science, stewardship and finding a balance between the environment, economy and social goals in lake management.
The deadline to submit abstracts is May 6, 2016. Find out more here.
