The ABMI is pleased to present the “It’s Our Nature to Know” webinar series. From taxonomic discoveries and geospatial research to tools and platforms that bring the data to lifejoin us monthly to learn more about the many facets of the ABMI. Each month a different ABMI staff member (from across our delivery partners at the Universtiy of Alberta, the Royal Alberta Museum, and Innotech Alberta) will explain how and why we monitor the different aspects of Alberta landscape and biodiversity (across multiple species groups) that we do, and how the data we collect helps to inform land-use decision-making.
