At the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology in Montpellier, France, in August, the Marine Section and Freshwater Working Group of the Society for Conservation Biology are collaborating to host the SCB Aquatic social event to celebrate the Life Aquatic. The joint social for members and potential members will feature a wine and cheese tasting at Le Comte Brasserie & Cheese Bar in Montpellier and casual visits to nearby pubs and cafés. The AquaForce will also be selling SCB Aquatic swag during the event and throughout the conference, with proceeds benefiting the Marine Section and the Freshwater Working Group.
Marine Section and Freshwater Working Group Joint Social
Tuesday, 4 August, 7:30 pm
Le Comte Brasserie & Cheese Bar
31 Rue de Chio, 34000 Montpellier
The Marine Section and the Freshwater Working Group invite members and those interested in becoming members to our first ever joint social! We’ll start with a fantastic wine and cheese tasting at a local cheese shop and then migrate out to the great local nightlife scene. The first 25 people to sign up get in FREE for the tasting (email SCB Marine Section Board Member Leslie Cornick at email@example.com to sign up)! After that, tickets will be €60 so that we can raise funds for more great events! Maximum capacity for the tasting is 50 people, so sign up early! Our theme is The Life Aquatic. We’ll have great beanies and wine glasses with our new joint logo for sale throughout the congress and at the social. Proceeds will benefit the Freshwater Working Group and the Marine Section.
