REMINDER: Latornell Grant Applications DUE September 23rd, 2016

The Latornell Conservation Symposium Grant was established in memory of A.D. Latornell to provide support for students and active members of the conservation community so that they may attend the annual Latornell Conservation Symposium.

A number of Three Day Grants and One Day Grants will be available in 2016.

Help support our Grant Program - Donate to the Latornell Dream Auction!

At the 2016 Symposium, we will host the 15th annual "Dream Auction" which supports our grant program providing support to people who would not otherwise be able to attend Latornell. With almost $12,000 raised at last year's auction, our grants will enable 10-20 students and/or representatives of smaller environmental non-governmental organizations to attend the 2016 Symposium.

You can help with this worthy cause by making a donation to the auction. We welcome anything you think might be successful at an auction.

To make a donation, a suggestion, or if you have any comments please contact Freyja Whitten at 647‑963‑2849 or
