together a wide range of participants concerned with the sustainability of freshwater,
estuarine and marine shorelines and the health of populations who live, work or recreate
in shoreline environments.
- Exchange and explore innovative ideas and ways, such as
Conservation Marketing, to focus efforts to protect, conserve, enhance, and restore
- Provide inspiration, empowerment, tools and support to
community-based stewardship and conservation groups.
- Recognize and reward, as part of the United Nations
International Year of the Volunteer, the valuable role of the volunteer in caring for
Canadas shorelines and in assisting scientists in inventory and monitoring work.
