You are invited to attend (virtually) any of the webinars listed below, sponsored by the Canadian Society of Environmental Biologists and (in part) by Comox Valley Nature. These are free events, but “seating capacity” is limited, and advance registration is required — use the links in the tables below or watch for subsequent posts for individual events which will also provide the link and more details.
In addition to the talks throughout the season, there is a special series associated with the Lazo Herring Workshop which we list first. The main schedule, which starts on February 21, follows this.
All times are Pacific Time.
