Fall Conference – Support from S.M. Blair Foundation

Students, Sustainability, Conservation Careers
to feature at Biosphere’s 2023 Conference – November 3rd

This year’s Long Point Biosphere Research and Conservation Conference, the 11th annual gathering,  will include a new dimension aimed at encouraging local students to consider post-secondary education and careers in sustainability, environmental research, and the preservation of biodiversity.

“Once again, we’re looking forward to informative presentations on research important to Norfolk County and our region,” says conference organizer Cynthia Brink, noting the strong response to the call for papers. “But this year we’re also introducing a parallel program of exhibits on related careers and education opportunities at colleges and universities.”

Bus transportation for Norfolk area high school students wanting to attend the event will be arranged thanks, in part, to generous financial support from the S. M. Blair Family Foundation.  The Blair Foundation encourages education, training, and research careers. Its donation of over $5K to the Biosphere will also facilitate student participation in full-day outdoor activities throughout the year.

The Conference will take place Friday 3 November 2023 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Port Dover Community Centre, 801 Saint George Street, Port Dover.  Sponsorship opportunities and Tickets are still available ($45/$30 for students, lunch included).  Check the  Long Point Biosphere website for registration or contact conference@longpointbiosphere.com.
