Event Description

The Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology (CMI) hosts an annual event where we gather ecologists (of various descriptions!) to provide updates on ecological projects taking place in southeastern British Columbia, such as field trials, new restoration projects and their associated community initiatives, ecosystem monitoring and research, etc. These updates cover a wide range of topics and species. This is an informal atmosphere and everyone is invited to attend.

This event travels around the Columbia Mountains area to small communities and this year our Researchers’ Forum is coming to Radium, BC. We’ll gather on October 17th-18th. We’ll host presentations and a social on the Monday, and field trips on the Tuesday to nearby ecology projects. This year we’d like to emphasize the theme of restoration, although all proposals sharing ecological projects in the area are welcomed.

A detailed schedule will be posted to this event page closer to the event, as well as a list of presenters and field trip opportunities.
