Prairie Conservation and Endangered Species Conference
Calgary, Alberta
2023 - Date to be determined


The 13th Prairie Conservation and Endangered Species Conference had been postponed until 2023!

The current committee is determined to proceed with the conference in a safe manner when gatherings are permitted again. We are hoping that by 2023 we will be able to gather safely in person. Please stay tuned for updates.

Held every three years since 1986, this is the premier conference for scientists, landowners, consultants, educators, nature enthusiasts, land managers, and others to share information and new approaches to conservation, agriculture and protection of prairie landscapes and native species.
