GOERT 13th Research Colloquium 2017 Program and Registration

Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team (GOERT)
th Annual Research Colloquium Draft Program and Registration

What: 13th Annual GOERT Research Colloquium

When: Friday November 17th, 2017, 9am–4:30pm

Where: University of Victoria, Cadboro Commons 

GOERT has again partnered with the Restoration of Natural Systems Program at the University of Victoria for its Research Colloquium. This year it will be held on Friday, November 17th, at the university. The theme will be: “New Ways of Understanding Garry Oak Ecosystems.” We will look at the Garry Oak Ecosystem as a layered landscape that has been shaped by its historical context and how contemporary social priorities are shaping its future. Also, how citizen science is being used to help understand and restore Garry Oak ecosystems.

We’ll present some of the latest research and projects including the importance of new technology, project updates (recovery planning, bluebirds and Somenos), the use of native vegetation in restoration projects and a look at other endangered ecosystems (sand dunes) for common challenges and solutions. Resilience theory, novel ecosystems and ecological thresholds are hot topics.

As in the past, the purpose of the GOERT Colloquium is to bring together people who are planning or conducting research and restoration projects relevant to Garry Oak Ecosystems and have them present brief descriptions of their studies and results to prompt discussion and encourage coordination and collaboration among groups.

Registration: E-mail your name & address to: finance@goert.ca

Cost: $30 individual, $15 student, $50 non-governmental non-profit group
(3 individuals max), includes lunch and refreshments.

Payment: Cash/cheque at the door or request an invoice.
