Marcus Zwicker, General Manager for WestFor, the consortium of mills managing the Western Crown Lands, will speak at the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute at 4 pm, Thurs Aug 17 as part of MTRI’s Summer Seminar Series.
These seminars are being live streamed and archived on the MTRI Facebook Page.
Update (Aug 19): The video is available here.
Amongst recent seminars:
– On Aug 10, MTRI’s Jason Henry and Lori Phinney talked about Chimney Swifts, Swallows and Bats (“Bugged Out“).
– On July 20, Forest Ecologist Donna Crossland talked about The State of Nova Scotia’s Forests.
We can expect to hear a fairly different perspective from Mr. Zwicker. Zwicker and later, Crossland were interviewed earlier in the summer on CBC Information Morning.
