The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation’s 10th biennial conference will take place in Grand Bend, Ontario, from May 10 – 11, 2018. Plan to experience Lake Huron this spring at this two-day conference, and to help celebrate the LHCCC’s 20th anniversary!
The conference will provide a forum for environmental professionals and the general public to learn about issues affecting Lake Huron’s coastal environment. Experts from the Great Lakes region will speak about coastal topics, local actions and solutions to environmental challenges. Everyone is welcome!
Each day will begin with a keynote speaker, followed by 3 concurrent sessions. Some of the topics discussed will include Great Lakes water levels, microplastics, turtle species at risk, shoreline cleanup data and its link to citizen science, agricultural environmental concerns and solutions, and the changing ecology and fish communities of Lake Huron.
On Thursday May 10th the LHCCC will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a fundraising banquet, held at the conference venue. Tickets are $75 and include an amazing meal with live musical entertainment, cash bar, raffle prizes, and a silent auction.
Registration is now open at www.lakehuron.ca/conference. Tickets are limited and registration closes May 7th. Special rates are available for students and LHCCC volunteers.
