In ecology, “edge effects” are changes to species populations and natural communities that occur where two habitats meet. Throughout our planet’s history, these edges have formed through natural means. However, human activity has begun to outpace these processes, creating more edges and leaving fewer intact habitats. #ConservationSympCLE features keynote speakers who will discuss human impact "on the edge." Topics of discussion will include climate change, agriculture and grazing practices. Rounding out the day are talks by regional conservation experts on a roster of topics including bumblebees, bobcats, plants, deer and the status of Ohio's wetlands.
Price: Symposium registration: $20. Registration increases to $25/person on Friday, September 2. A boxed lunch (turkey or veggie sandwich) can be pre-ordered for an additional $12. Tuesday, September 6 is last day to pre-order lunch.
