At this two day conference, 125 participants heard talks from federal and provincial government staff, and consulting biologists, on the methods and issues surrounding identification of critical habitat. As there is no “cookbook” approach suitable for all situations, presenters were chosen for their experiences with a variety of species and situations.
On the third day (October 20), CMI Director Ian Adams led 18 participants in a field trip from Cranbrook to Radium Hot Springs.
On October 20, 18 people attended a session offered by Karyn Sutherland and Susan Leech of FORREX (http://www.forrex.org) titled “ABCs of Planning a Communication Strategy that Works”.
