CSEE is coming to the Prairies for the first time in 2015. We invite you to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on May 22-24 2015 for the 10th annual CSEE meeting hosted by the University of Saskatchewan. This year, the theme of the conference is: 'Ecology and Evolution of Managed Landscapes'. Come and experience the “Paris of the Prairies”, and one of Canada’s finest Collegiate Gothic style campuses. Saskatoon offers extensive opportunities for naturalists; we will be organizing field trips to a number of destinations. Registration will open in January.
