Mark your calendars! July 8-11, 2009: join us in Calgary, Alberta for the 4th National Stewardship and Conservation Conference "Strengthening Stewardship - Investing at Every Step"!

Held every three years since 2000, Stewardship and Conservation is the national conference where Canada’s stewards can meet to discuss emerging issues and solutions for strengthening stewardship across the country. The program will open with a summary of the State of Stewardship in Canada report, which will review adopted policy directions, conservation tools, strategies of various communities of stewardship interest including governments, resource industries, and non-government organizations, and conclude with gaps and remedial actions required. Plenary and concurrent sessions, poster papers and field trips will be focused around the top issues affecting Canadians where stewardship can make a difference! Program themes include: Overspending our Natural Capital? – Making Stewardship Part of the Answer; Responding to Our Changing World – Environment and Our Health, Climate Change, the Changing Demographics of Our Communities, Globalization (Food, Energy, and Biofuels); Stewardship from Grassroots to Policy; and Showcasing Innovations in Stewardship (including examples related to watersheds). Conference delegates will be part of creating a Road Map for future Stewardship investment in Canada. Join us in Calgary during the world famous Calgary Stampede and enjoy our Western hospitality, great entertainment, as well as the proximity of beautiful Banff National Park and Kananaskis Country!
