Introducing the Conservation Information Co-operative (CIC) - a NEW
Conservation and Environmental Stewardship web page!

        Conservation Information Co-operative (CIC)


The Conservation Information Co-operative (CIC) is a non-government,
non-partisan conservation and stewardship information organization based
at the University of Guelph.  The CIC is a project of the Centre for Land
and Water Stewardship, under the direction of Dr. Stew Hilts.  It is
sponsored by the A.D. Latornell Endowment Fund and the Faculty of
Environmental Sciences.

For several years there have been discussions among the Centre for Land
and Water Stewardship and its partners on the value of a comprehensive
