CHS Annual Conference

Annual conferences are usually held on a Friday evening to Monday in early to mid-September. Each year, conferences are held at a different location across Canada.

Members are encouraged to give presentations or submit posters on all aspects of herpetological conservation (e.g. stewardship projects, population management, education) and research (e.g. population dynamics, genetics, disease). Some annual general conferences will have symposia or workshops that address specific issues relevant to amphibian and reptile research and conservation.

Conferences are accompanied with a field trip, usually on the Monday. The Field trip provides members with an exciting opportunity to see and learn about local species and their habitat.

If you would like more information on the annual conferences and are not on the CHS mailing list, please send your questions, as well as your e-mail and telephone number to the .
