Wildfires and climate change are realities in British Columbia and they can have dramatic impacts on our lives.
Addressing these issues requires a multi-level approach.
At the 2018 Kootenay Wildfire & Climate Change Conference we shared the latest scientific research and initiatives from the Kootenays and the international arena regarding climate change, wildfire behaviour and why taking action at a landscape scale will result in a more resilient ecosystem.
Given the scope of the challenges, other topics included community emergency preparedness and steps that residents can take to deal with wildfire risks.
