Wetlands and Climate Change - Wetlands Institute Speaker Series

2020 Wetlands Institute Speaker Series:

Wetlands and Climate Change

: November 10th, 2020, 10 am to 11:30 am 
Where:  Hosted virtually over Zoom. 
Cost NO CHARGE (valued at $100)

Due to COVID-19, The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Insitute has been formatted into a virtual Speaker Series- a series of stand-alone webinars and workshops hosted throughout the Fall, covering topics that are of interest to those working in the environmental sector with wetlands (including environmental education).

Please join us to learn more about using models to determine the risks to wetlands in the face of climate change.


Guest Speaker:  

  • Nelson Jatel is the Water Stewardship Director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board, and he will be speaking on the  Okanagan Wetlands Action Plan and the relationship and value of wetlands and the risks associated with climate change.


  • Karen Price (PhD) and Dave Daust (MSc, RPF) work at the interface of science and management. Their recent work assesses the cumulative risk to ecological values posed by resource development and climate change, and determines how to improve decision-making to increase ecological resilience. They will be sharing their knowledge and analysis of the potential impacts to wetlands and stream systems in the Skeena region.


This workshop is suitable for consultants, planners, environmental/conservation groups, government representatives, First Nations, environmental educators, and engaged community members. Participants are invited to join the workshop with a wetland project or program that they wish to implement in their community and/or have a high propensity to initiate a project/program in the future.  

This experience will also provide you access to a network of individuals who will help you successfully complete your local conservation project(s). You will leave with the skills, support, and confidence you need to make a difference in the world of wetland conservation. The BC Wildlife Federation offers follow-up support and resources to participants who complete the workshop, for up to 3 years post-workshop. Full-time participants are eligible to receive a certificate after successfully completing the workshop. 

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we bring these valuable knowledge transfer events free of charge to wetland practitioners all over BC (and into other provinces!). This special offer is available thanks to the generous contributions of our funders.

Registration is limited and set on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration is separate for each individual event so please make sure to sign up for each event of interest. 

 This workshop is best experienced on a desktop or laptop computer, and a strong, stable internet connection is highly recommended.
