This five-day trip (Oct 22-26) will offer a combination of presentations, lectures and tours within the Churchill Wildlife Management Area and surrounding areas, and will accommodate all of your travel needs. Here’s an overview of the unique package that has been tailored specifically for our conference attendees:

But don’t delay! Due to the enthusiastic response we’ve received for this trip, only 20 tickets remain and we’re urging any interested member to register now before the June 30th deadline.

These trips are offered by Churchill Northern Studies Centre, so you must register directly through them separately from your TWS conference registration. For further information please contact CNSC at cnsc@churchillscience.ca or call and register by phone at 204-675-2307.
