2014 Conference and AGM

Thank you to our hosts Likely-Xat’sull and Esk’etemc Community Forests for taking us on two great field tours and for managing to have the weather cooperate completely and with little interference from insects.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in the Cariboo. It was another great time for networking with old and new friends and colleagues along with some excellent presentations and sessions. The event always strengthens our network and inspires each of us who attend.
