Those wishing to participate in the forthcoming Goose Specialist Group conference can now register. (Registration still open……)
As announced by Ingunn Tombre at the recent meeting in Elista, the 14th meeting of the Goose Specialist Group (GSG) will be held in Steinkjer, Norway between 17th – 22nd April 2012. The meeting will be hosted by the College in Nord-Trøndelag (HiNT) at the Faculty of Agriculture and Information Technology in Steinkjer. Special focus will be towards Svalbard populations of Pink-footed and Barnacle geese.
Steinkjer is situated about 120 kilometers north of Trondheim. If arriving by car, you will need to follow the E6 road north of Trondheim (signposted to Narvik). There are flights from Oslo as well as from several other European airports directly to Trondheim (Værnes airport). Trains go at least once an hour from just outside the airport and stop just 200 metres from the college in Steinkjer.
There will also be a mid-conference excursion on 20th April by bus to look at some of the specialities near to Steinkjer. We hope to see spring-staging Pink-footed geese, as well as other geese, White-tailed eagles and large numbers of migrant thrushes. In addition, and if there are sufficient people interested, we will also arrange evening excursions by minibus to look for moose.
A special conference website has been established (http://www.gsg2012.com/), which can also be accessed by following a link from the GSG’s own website (http://www.geese.org/gsg/). Conference costs as well as registration form for booking can be found on the same website. The conference organizers may be contacted directly by e-mail (email@example.com). Conference costs include all food, as well as the mid-conference excursion. Maps, train timetables and other useful information will shortly appear on the website. Continue reading
