Attention Conference Attendees!
As you prepare to join us at Wilfrid Laurier University for the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Botanical Association, the Local Organizing Committee would like to share a couple of last minute notes with you. The final conference program is now available for you to view under “Schedule”. Please note that you don’t need to print the Conference Program, as you will receive a colour copy when you arrive. Also, we suggest that you consider packing a light sweater or jacket, as the rooms in our facility can sometimes get a bit cool during the summer.
For those registrants who indicated that you would be interested in purchasing a conference t-shirt, they will be available for purchase at the registration desk. Please note that we are only able to accept cash
