a) "A Trip Through the Data Portal," presented by representatives from the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, is now scheduled as a double session on Saturday morning to allow for on-campus field work and sample analysis.

c) Session selections for "Giant Floor Maps" in session SB may need to be redone after a room change for this Saturday morning workshop.

All delegates are advised to follow the instructions provided in the automatic invoice email to check or complete your session selections. If you are staying for the Friday night banquet, please choose that session as well.
