The purpose of the Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology
We're known for hosting balanced, science-driven conferences and specialized courses to present the newest information and methodologies. We are a regional group that connects people working in the various fields of applied ecology – natural resource practitioners, managers, researchers, educators, academics, stewardship groups, and others with an interest in the ecology of southeastern British Columbia. We keep ecologists up-to-date and encourage cross-disciplinary learning. Our website offers many resources including conference summaries for all of our past events.
The CMI is a non-profit society based in Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada. We have one staff person, Jackie Morris, and a very hands-on Board of Directors.
Join CMI. Our members e-newsletters with regional content, enjoy discounted registration fees at our events, receive advance notice of our conferences and courses, and share their information with other like-minded people. Be a corporate, individual, or student member.
