2014 Sources of Knowledge Forum
The Sources of Knowledge Forum is a Registered Charity #83042 9486 RR0001.
National parks and the communities in which they are woven are most recognized for their natural beauty and recreational opportunities.
However, they are also significant sources of knowledge on Canada’s natural and cultural heritage and serve as valuable sites for research and learning on conservation and sustainable development.
The Sources of Knowledge Forum is intended to demonstrate how research in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, and the surrounding community contributes to knowledge of the Bruce Peninsula’s natural and human history.
The Forum is a regular means of presenting research activities, their results and their implications for decision-making.
It provides students, educators, researchers, citizens, business operators and policy-makers with access to networks, information and ideas through which local knowledge can be integrated into their respective interests.
The first Sources of Knowledge Forum in May 2009 focused on “Coastal Heritage“.
The second Forum in May 2010 focused on “Wildlife and Community Values”.
The third Forum in April 2011 explored “Dark Skies, Bright Minds”.
The fourth Forum was held in April 2012 and tackled the theme of “Climate Change”.
At last year’s Forum – the fifth in a continuing series – we learned about the CHALLENGES OF A CHANGING LAKE.
