The meeting theme highlights the connection between the St. Lawrence, Great Lakes and their watersheds, and the challenges and successes of empowering communities to participate in the restoration and protection of these connected ecosystems.The Institute is currently calling for Sessions and Session Chairs, with a submission deadline of January 16th.
The Capital pleased to announce the launch of the report “Identification and Characterization of Ecological Corridors Adjacent to Gatineau Park.
This report provides detailed information about existing connections between Gatineau Park and other natural areas in the region. In developing the report, the NCC received valuable scientific and technical advice from an independent committee of experts, while benefitting from the data provided by municipal and regional partners and the input of multiple stakeholders. Our hope is that this information-based tool will add value to land use planning decisions that are ultimately made by private individuals and enterprises or by local and regional authorities.
