With shovels and trees in hand, conference attendees are invited to take a short bus ride to Heidmork, Reykjavik’s largest recreational forest. Upon arrival at Heidmork, we will join members of the Forestry Association of Reykjavik in a “Tree Planting” activity which will serve to offset the carbon emissions from the trip. A plaque will be made to dedicate

Upon Arrival in Iceland, Puffins will
be there to greet you.

Among the sites to see in Iceland, check out the puffins.

“Iceland is home to one of the world's largest colonies of puffins, and every August millions of newborn puffins leave their burrows in the cliffs of Heimaey—the main island in the Westmann Islands chain off the south coast of Iceland—to fly off over the north Atlantic. They leave at night, using the moon to navigate.”

Iceland is one of those colonies because in spring time the puffins come over here for nesting and Iceland is the breeding home for about 60 percent of the world's Atlantic puffins. Puffins can be seen in Iceland from early April until September each year.
