The extreme weather events of 2021 are not far behind us. In a year like no other, British Columbians witnessed record-breaking heat, destructive fires and devastating floods.
What are the forces behind such extreme weather events? Do land management practices, such as clearcutting, play a role? How about fire suppression?
On June 7, CBC Vancouver’s senior meteorologist and seismologist Johanna Wagstaffe will moderate a panel of environmental experts at Fires and Floods, a free, online UBC Webinar about the impacts of forestry practices on climate change.
Join the discussion and learn about the forestry practices that are shaping B.C. landscapes and how the profession can help mitigate the impact of extreme weather-related events.
