Event Details en-
As part of National Forest Week festivities across Canada, the Pacific Forestry Centre will be hosting a forest walk and a series of talks on National Tree Day: Wednesday, September 24, 2014.
All are invited to the Pacific Forestry Centre to meet research scientists Tony Trofymow and Kendrick Brown who will talk about their research on how fires, insects, and people have changed Victoria’s local watershed through time. The key is carbon and its complex, but powerful role, in climate change. Joel Ussery from the Capital Regional District will talk to us about why this research is so important to Victoria’s primary water supply. You will also meet Céline Boisvenue, who studies the effects of climate change on forests and how it relates to carbon, to learn more about carbon’s role in a changing climate.
Bring your curiosity and your questions!
