Wildfire & Climate Change Conference
June 26, 2018 - June 28, 2018
The Conference will share the latest scientific research and initiatives from the Kootenays and from the international arena on climate change, wildfire behavior and why this leads us toward a need to take action at a landscape scale for a more resilient ecosystem.
Target Audience: forest licensees (small woodlots to large companies), local government, emergency services, and community members. We are expecting approximately 250 attendees.
The two-day conference will be followed by one day of workshops for the forest licensees and a separate workshop for community members in order to identify barriers and opportunities to engage in wildfire risk mitigation and carbon effective forest management.
Early bird registration ends May 18th
