>CSEB - The Canadian Society of Environmental Biologists
The CSEB is a national, not-for-profit organization that provides biologists
with a voice to promote the conservation and sound management of Canadian
natural resources through public education, discussion of public policy,
environmental research and encouragement of high professional standards.>

>Two days of stimulating sessions will bring together the expertise of
biologists from across Canada and the United States. Papers will be
presented on a wide range of topics, from the use of "macro" technologies
such as GIS and GPS, to "micro" technologies involving genetic markers or
chemical isotopes in biological studies.
Concurrent with the conference are poster sessions and a trade show
featuring displays and demonstrations of the technologies that are becoming
part of the biologist's
investigative toolbox.
>Dr. David Schindler, University of Alberta Killiam professor, will deliver
the Conference's Keynote Address (title tba). The featured banquet speaker
is marine biologist and inventor of the CRITTERCAM, Greg Marshall (National
Geographic Television). From an opening day rafting trip down the North
Saskatchewan River to the post-conference field trip to Elk Island National
Park and Beaverhill Lake Bird Observatory, CSEB97 offers the best of
Edmonton and warm western hospitality.
>     The venue for CSEB97 is the Crowne Plaza - Chateau Lacombe,
overlooking the river valley in downtown Edmonton. Suites, single and double
rooms are available at special conference rates. These rates will be
honoured for a week pre- and post-conference for those wishing to extend
their visits. Booking by AUGUST 30 is recommended. You can reserve your room
by toll-free telephone (1-800-661-8801). Electronic reservations can be made
beginning in August; information on this option, and a downloadable Hotel
FaxBack form will be on the CSEB Webpage as soon as it is available.
>     Edmonton International Airport hosts both national and international
air carriers. Shuttle bus service ($11) will bring you directly to the
Conference location at the Crown Plaza-Chateau Lacombe; or you may opt for
taxi ($25) or auto rental.
>     ** Travel and accommodation reservations and arrangements are to be
made by Conference attendees.
>     Meals provided during the conference include one luncheon and one
>     Edmonton is located at 53 32'N  113 32'W. As a well-conditioned
biologist, you'll come prepared for both warm (Indian summer) and cool; dry
and wet. Snowshoes won't be necessary!
>     CSEB97 brings you to the edge of  Edmonton's scenic river valley. Here
are a myriad of trails and diverse venues (historic Fort Edmonton, John
Janzen Nature Centre, Muttart Conservatory, Kinsmen Fitness Centre, and the
"River Queen" stern wheel paddleboat). You'll be close to downtown shopping,
theatres, library, art museum,  and the new Winspear Arts Centre. From this
hub it's a quick LRT ride south to Old Strathcona, and the University of
Alberta. To the west are the Alberta Legislature Building, Provincial Museum
of Alberta, 124 Street, and West Edmonton Mall. Northlands Coliseum,
Commonwealth Stadium, Concordia University College and NAIT (Northern
Alberta Institute of Technology) are on the north/east route.
>     Restaurants and nightlife abound (need we say more!?). There's sports
pro, amateur, and self-serve hiking, biking, jogging, swimming, golf . .
.Thrill to the power of an IMAX movie at the Edmonton Space Sciences Centre.
Or take a quiet moment, and search for petrified wood, dinosaur bones, and
gold nuggets on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River.
>     Edmonton is Aspen Parkland country. North of the flat prairies, this
region is dotted with a myriad of lakes and rolling hills left as the great
glaciers receded. Elk Island National Park is home to bison (field trip);
many migratory birds stop over at Beaverhill Lake (field trip). The Devonian
Botanic Gardens and the Clifford E. Lee Bird Sanctuary are on the sandy
dunes to the west of the city. Further in the same direction is Jasper
National Park in the Rocky Mountains, about a 5 hour drive away.
>     Concurrent with the conference will be a trade show, with facilities
located immediately adjacent to session halls. Prospective trade show
participants are invited to contact CSEB97 organizers. Applications are
accepted on a first-come basis; deadline September 15, 1997.
>     Profile your organization with CSEB97 sponsorship. John Lilley (Lilley
Environmental Consulting) and Gary Ash (RL&L Environmental Services Ltd)
will be pleased to provide additional information on this special
opportunity for your financial or in-kind support.
