We’re Connecting Knowledge with Action
At Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), we’re committed to sharing knowledge about the Credit River Watershed. Whether that be through webinars, online resources or in-person workshops, information sharing is powerful. CVC hosts a Research Colloquium every two years, with the theme Connecting Knowledge with Action. This year, we’re inviting students, professors and environmental professionals to join us to share and learn about the research that is being carried out in the watershed.
Our Aim is to Facilitate
During this event, participants can expect to:
- Learn about the incorporation of findings from research in our jurisdiction into CVC’s work
- Learn about opportunities for networking and mentoring
- Build and strengthen collaborations
- Provide direct feedback from applied practitioners to researchers
We welcome attendance from all members of our research community. The event is an opportunity to learn more about the watershed and what is happening in it. The program includes presentations from both external researchers and CVC staff, as well as opportunities for networking.
