September 21-22 in Jasper, Alberta
WPEF’s annual gatherings are an opportunity to increase awareness and understanding of high elevation pines. For fifteen years, we have steadily strengthened ties between managers, scientists, academics, and the public. In 2017 we return to Canada where interest and activities are growing. Come to the WPEF 2017 Science and Management Conference in Jasper National Park on September 21st and 22nd and celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday in one of our most breath-taking places (http://www.pc.gc.ca/Jasper).
WPEF’s 16th annual workshop will showcase:
- The latest news, science, and management tips for practitioners, students, educators, the public, and others with an interest in dwindling five-needled pines.
- Exceptional on-the-ground learning experience by visiting high-elevation forests with interpretation by experts.
- Opportunities for improving cross-border networks.
The indoor presentations on Thursday will be held in the town of Jasper (www.jaspercanadianrockies.com) at the heart of the national park. There will be field trips the next day or two. Keep checking the WPEF website for accommodation links and conference. We hope to see you there!
