On the Road to Stewardship

ICOET 2005 was successfully conducted August 29 - September 2 in San Diego, CA. The conference drew more than 390 attendees from 15 countries and included the participation of nearly 40 students interested in exploring potential careers in ecology and transportation!

The steering committee extends special thanks to the conference co-hosts, Caltrans and UC-Davis Road Ecology Center, for their hospitality and assistance with the conference. And thanks especially to the conference co-sponsors, including HDR Engineering, URS Corporation, Sensor Technologies and Systems, Inc., Electrobraid Fence, Inc., MRUTC Deer-Vehicle Crash Information Clearinghouse, Jones & Stokes Environmental Consultants, and Roscoe Steel and Culvert Company, who made possible many of the networking events associated with the conference.

ICOET participants offered a special donation on the final day of the conference to victims of Hurricane Katrina, which attacked the Gulf Coast states during the week of ICOET. CTE is forwarding the contributions to Brother's Brother Foundation, a four-star charity based in Pittsburgh, PA, which involves the international community in working with and through local agencies and organizations impacted by natural disasters to match available resources with people's needs. Donations aid in the distribution and provision of medical, educational, agricultural and other resources.

The Center for Transportation and the Environment at North Carolina State University served as lead organizer and co-sponsor of ICOET 2005. Please contact us if you have any questions.
