Wildfire and Climate Change Conference Nelson June 26th and 27th

The Slocan Integral Forestry Cooperative (the community forest in the Slocan Valley) and the Ministry of Forests Lands, Natural Resource Operation and Rural Development are working together to bring the Wildfire and Climate Change Conference to Nelson, BC on June 26th and 27th, with a field trip day on the 28th. The Conference will share the latest scientific research and initiatives from the Kootenays and from the international arena on climate change, wildfire behaviour 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. They 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. The BCCFA will attend the event and is registered as an exhibitor. Check out the poster
