About SCB Kingston

Welcome to the SCB Kingston Chapter!

The Society for Conservation Biology is a local group committed to promoting environmental and conservation endeavours 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. Weekly meetings usually include an overview of our events, information about local conservation efforts, and sign-ups for the multiple programs and activities our club has to offer. Visitors to weekly meetings are welcome! Weekly meetings for 2018 will be on Tuesdays at 5:45pm, in the 4th Floor EEB Lounge in the Biosciences Building on Queen’s Campus.
