The Comox Valley Land Trust and Conservation Partnership invites you to join them for a FREE community presentation on Tuesday evening March 14th at 7 pm sharp, (doors open at 6.30 pm) at the Florence Filberg Centre in Downtown Courtenay called Climate Change, Nature’s Services and Thinking Like a Watershed.
Climate change and rising sea levels, storm surges, intense winter storms and long dry summers all have a serious impact on our community. However, there are important actions that local government and conservation organizations can take to help mitigate these impacts. When our community “Thinks Like a Watershed”, we have the opportunity make land use and infrastructure decisions that can help address these challenges and build resilience and adaptability for the future.
In this engaging and timely community presentation, ecologists, climatologists, hydrologists, first nations and policy leaders will discuss the incredible value of the services that nature provides, free of charge, from the top of the glacier to the bottom of the ocean.
Join us on Tuesday March 14th to learn more about “Thinking Like a Watershed” and be part of action that helps to maintain and improve both our quality of life and the health of the natural environment.
