About SCB Kingston

Welcome to the SCB Kingston Chapter!

The Society for Conservation Biology is a local group committed to promoting environmental and conservation endeavors in the Kingston area. The society is composed entirely of volunteers from the community who meet weekly to discuss relevant current events, host guest speakers, and organize the community outreach programs for which the SCB has become well known.The Kingston SCB has weekly meetings and hosts evening seminars on topics relating to conservation each school term. Weekly meetings usually include an issue presentation by one of our members, committee reports and updates on current projects (e.g. education committee planting events, research on current local issues, letter writing campaigns, information on upcoming seminars, etc.) and then a summary of conservation and environment topics recently in the news. Visitors to weekly meetings are welcome!
