Mark Your Calendars: the RCEN’s 2010 Conference is this September 17-19

The RCEN is pleased to announce that its 2010 Annual General Assembly and Conference on the Environment will be held in Montreal, from September 17-19.

The theme of this year’s event is “Conserving Biodiversity Pays: The Values of Ecosystem Services”. The organizing committee is working hard to deliver an even bigger and better event than last year’s successful AGA in Edmonton! We’ll be in touch with more details soon.
