2021 Youth Summit on Invasive Species Projects and Collaboration
November 18 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
The Early Detection & Rapid Response (EDRR) Network Ontario is hosting a free, one-day virtual Youth Summit featuring topics about invasive species (flora & fauna) projects and collaboration. The Summit is well-suited for students and young professionals in Eastern Ontario interested in learning more about emerging invasive species issues, ongoing projects in the field, and career opportunities. Although topics are Eastern Ontario focused, the Summit is open for all to attend.
The event will host seven invasive species experts with various professional backgrounds, introducing a diverse array of projects and careers, while demonstrating the importance of invasive species work and collaboration. Join us to learn about the impacts of invasive species, how to prevent, detect & report invasive species and about many of the organizations that work together to protect our natural spaces.
This event is made possible thanks to contributions from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). As part of this event, we would like to recognize the OTF for its contributions to invasive species work in Ontario.
Stay tuned for the full agenda!
