Ever wonder what challenges face the many scientists, land managers, biologists and educators in their efforts to protect the valuable resources and biodiversity of the Channel Islands?

Now is your chance to learn more about these remarkable men and women, their areas of expertise and ongoing research.  This Tuesday through Thursday, October 23, 24 and 25th, 2012, join us for the 8th California Islands Symposium at the Ventura Beach Marriott, in Ventura California.  

With topics ranging from the History of the Channel Islands to Teaching Students to Trends in Marine Ecosystems and more, this is an assemblage of international experts on issues impacting the success of overall island conservation.

Channel Islands Park Foundation will be there as we co-host a special evening with Channel Islands authors and book signing event on Tuesday.  In cooperation with Western National Parks Association, we have brought together a unique line-up of internationally recognized authors and artists who will share their perspective on the Channel Islands.

We are all island stewards regardless of our professions and at the 8th California Islands Symposium we can join with the specialists who devote their lives to ensuring these unique places have the support needed so future generations can partake of their wonder.
