Since 1987, the Laurentian Forestry Centre (LFC) has hosted many high-calibre speakers who have shared their knowledge and discoveries.
Lectures begin at 10:30 am (Eastern Time) and last approximately 60 minutes, followed by a question period.
Lectures are presented in French, unless otherwise specified.
The objective of the CFS-LFC lectures series is to provide knowledge to our partners and the forestry community.
