It’s time to mark your calendars for Friday, February 11th, 2011 for the 8th annual GOERT Research Colloquium!
As in the past, the purpose of the Research Colloquium is to bring together people who are planning or conducting research & restoration projects relevant to Garry oak ecosystems to have them present brief descriptions of their studies and results to prompt discussion and encourage coordination among agencies.
We hope that all who are interested in contributing, either in person or via an Abstract for inclusion in the Proceedings (distributed via email after the Colloquium), will respond. As always, we encourage students to present a talk on their current or planned work relevant to Garry oak ecosystems; the Colloquium is a great venue to elicit constructive comment. GOERT provides a free lunch (yes, free!) for all student presenters.
Please note that the presenter registration deadline has been extended to February 4th; those offering a talk are requested to complete the Registration form by that date so that we can draft the Program to accommodate travel plans and organize audio-visual needs and cafeteria orders. The deadline for general participants is also February 4th.
An optional walking field trip to Summit Park will be held:
February 12, 2011
Led by Fred Hook (City of Victoria Parks)

Lunch can be purchased at the Pacific Forestry Centre, and student presenters are provided with a free lunch. We are looking forward to having you there!
