The Conservation Community in St. John's, Newfoundland is excited to
be hosting the 2007 CAC-ACCR Annual Conference, and encourage you to
start thinking about participating.  Newfoundland is an incredibly
popular destination in the spring and summer, and those hoping to
attend should plan on booking early, as rental cars and bed and
breakfast accommodation on particular are snapped up quickly - often
by March.  We suggest you go to
