Canadian Rivers Institute: Integrated Forum: Ecosystem Management Course

This course is made up of a series of 6 webinar lectures presented by Roland Cormier.  We will have a final face-to-face workshop at the end of April to tie things together and participate in a full day game based on a marine spatial planning exercise. The examples used will mainly be marine ecosystems, but the topics and content relate to ANY environment.  

It is open to ANY student, staff, or colleague. The course experience will be richer the more participants we have from different backgrounds.
