In August 2011 the Churchill Northern Studies Centre opened a new LEED certified building and the Bob Jefferies Symposium was the first event in this stunning building.

The symposium brought together Bob's family and friends (seen above at the "polar bear jail"), as well as former students, colleagues, and members of the Churchill community.

This collection contains photographs, presentations, audio and video from the symposium. But, attendees did not only sit in the new Churchill Northern Studies Centre. They headed out on a series of trips to Fort Prince of Wales, the Town of Churchill, the river, for beluga watching, and the tundra. This was a chance for family, friends and colleagues to experience the ecosystem that drew Bob Jefferies here for over 30 years.
