Many of our winters in recent years have seemed overly mild, low on our traditionally heavy snowfall and even anemic, temperature-wise. Are these sure signs of Climate Change?
Well, now is the perfect time to find out during the Columbia Mountains Institute for Applied Ecology’s public discussion — Climate Change in the North Columbia Mountains — tonight, Thursday, March 10, in the Macpherson Room at the Community Centre starting at 7 pm.
This public talk is being led by Greg Utzig of Kutenai Nature Investigations and Mountain Labyrinths’ Cindy Pearce.
Together Greg and Cindy will describe why the changing climate is becoming more obvious each year. Recent analyses for the North Columbia Mountains illustrate potential long-term changes for the climate and local ecosystems. Utzig will describe these analyses and explain how these changes might impact forestry, tourism, recreation and other land-based activities.
This is a public talk delivered by the foremost climate change expert in our region — all are welcome! Admission is by donation. Suggested donation is $5 – $10.
This event is the public portion of a workshop being held on March 11 from 8:30 am until 4 pm.
