Webinar, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PST

 

This is the second webinar as part of a new Wildfire and Climate Change Winter/Spring 2019 Webinar Series

Whistler is located in an area with high wildfire risks and significant community and provincial values. This webinar will review how the Resort Municipality has assessed wildfire risk then planned and implemented wildfire risk reduction activities at both the landscape and community scales, including FireSmart, high priority area fuel treatments and fuel break logging.

Speakers:

• Heather Beresford, Environmental Stewardship Manager, Resort Municipality of Whistler
• Bruce Blackwell, B.A. Blackwell and Associates Ltd.
• Tom Cole, Forestry Manager, Cheakamus Community Forest

These webinars expand on the learnings from the 2018 Kootenay Wildfire and Climate Change conference. The topics include landscape and community scale wildfire risk reduction and climate change, and the examples span the province.

Anyone interested in wildfire risk reduction in BC will benefit from these webinars – natural resource and wildfire managers and practitioners; local government staff and elected officials; and keen community members.
