Centre for Applied Sciences in Ontario Protected Areas (CASIOPA)Thursday April 10 2014 & Friday April 11, 2014 University of Waterloo Summit Centre for the Environment 87 Forbes Hill Drive, Huntsville, ON https://uwaterloo.ca/waterloo-summit-centre
Objective Day 1: Planned around several plenary style talks that should help stimulate discussion in the afternoon about how the participants at large think about doing long term monitoring in terms of effectiveness and ability to pay for it (which can include more in-kind and partnership arrangements as budgets tighten further).
Objective Day 2: To provide researchers, practitioners, and graduate students with the opportunity to present applied Ontario-based case studies pertaining to environmental monitoring. While the session is open to various protected areas issues, presentations should focus on the role of protected areas in serving scientific research and monitoring, and should address the implications for current policy, planning and management. This could include, for examples, presentations on the record of research and monitoring in parks and how this is influencing decision- making/policy/management at various levels (e.g., species at risk, wildlife management, ecological restoration efforts, invasive species, climate change).
