*Note on PPE: CBR can provide PPE equipment such as hard-hats and high-visibility vests as required, as well as any equipment needed for field collections or seed handling.

Participants are required to wear closed toed-shoes in all CBR facility spaces and it is recommended that participants wear comfortable closed toed-shoes to the field and dress according to the weather.

We will start the day with introductions and a brief rundown of expectations and topics/skills of interest for the group. The group will be able to tour the facility and learn about the variety of projects the Centre is involved in. CBR will provide a catered lunch to the group. During the afternoon session we have the option to visit a local collection site for a sample field collection, or we may do some seed extractions in the lab. This will primarily depend on Mother Nature and what the plant community has ready for collection at the time of the tour.

People will need to find their own way but there may be the option for carpooling.  Please answer the questions below if you can offer a ride or if you need a ride. When answering the questions, please provide your phone number.
