The Grasslands Conservation Council of BC (GCC) would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and field tour on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16, 2012, in Kamloops, BC. The meeting is an opportunity for all members and supporters of the GCC to celebrate the successes and review the challenges the GCC has faced in the last year and to help shape our direction for the next year. The AGM is also a chance for you, as a valued GCC member, to make suggestions about more effective communication and service to members.

A wine and cheese gathering will be held following the AGM and board meeting on the evening of Friday, June 15, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Researchers from the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) will be presenting posters on their cutting edge grasslands research.

On Saturday, June 16, don't miss the annual grasslands field tour and grasslands dinner. Last year, it was enthusiastically enjoyed by all. The dinner, followed by an interview with Connie Philip, who came to teach at Long Lake in 1948 and never left, was an absolute highlight.

Please be sure to bring your own lunch, a lawn chair, a hat, and some sunscreen and a rain jacket.

A registration form for both events is attached for your convenience--click here to access it.
