Lake Management in a Changing Environment by vgw19124


									                                               Lake Management in a Changing Environment
                                 NALMS and the Alberta Lake Management Society invite you to join us for NALMS 2008
                                 at Château Lake Louise, in beautiful Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It has been nearly ten
                                 years since NALMS last visited Alberta for the 18th International Symposium at Banff
                                 Springs Hotel, and there have been major changes in the economy and environment of
                                 Alberta and the world.
                                 Our symposium theme concerns lake management during unprecedented development,
                                 water scarcity, and climate change. Expect an excellent and wide-ranging technical
                                 program. More than 30 special sessions and several pre-conference workshops are
                                 Leisure activities abound in Banff National Park – one of Canada’s most spectacular
                                 National Parks, a World Heritage site. Planned activities include the NALMS annual 5 km
                                 run/walk, the Columbia Icefields Tour across the Great Divide – the backbone of North
Lake Management                  America – and other organized events. There will be opportunity for independent
                                 activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing, natural hot springs, skating, shopping in
 in a Changing                   Banff and plenty of sightseeing.
