Students as Catalysts for Large Landscape Conservation

The Conference on Students as Catalysts for Large Landscape Conservation will take place at Colby College in Waterville, Maine on March 1, 2013. It will build off the work of the Program on Academic and Research Institutions as Conservation Catalysts (PARCC).

Scheduled speakers include leaders in large landscape conservation: James Levitt, Director of the Program on Conservation Innovation at Harvard Forest; Gary Tabor, Director, Center for Large Landscape Conservation and Senior Fellow, Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy at the University of Montana; Robert Lilieholm, E.L. Giddings Associate Professor of Forest Policy at the University of Maine; Catherine Johnson, Senior Staff Attorney and North Woods Project Director, Natural Resources Council of Maine; Mike Tetreault, Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy in Maine; Brian Czech, Biologist, National Wildlife Refuge System, Branch of Planning, Headquarters Office US Fish and Wildlife Service; and Doug Milek, Director of Student Programs, Round River Conservation Studies.

Colby College is also soliciting student posters for display and presentation at the conference. These will not be considered as part of the conservation innovation contest for students, but will provide an additional opportunity for students to share the work they have done related to large landscape conservation.

Conference registration will open October 2012. EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS FEBRUARY 15th 2013.

Breakfast and lunch will be included with conference registration. Guest wireless access will be available to conference participants.
