The UBC Faculty of Forestry in partnership with alumni UBC invite you to hear from experts at the forefront of wildfire research, fire risk identification and mitigation, and wildfire policy. Learn why British Columbia has experienced two record-setting fire seasons in a row, how climate change is influencing the likelihood of wildfires, and how our province can learn from California’s past decade of fighting megafires. Be part of the discussion during the Q&A with the audience, and then continue the conversation afterwards during the reception.

We are excited to be able to offer this panel discussion in both Kelowna and Vancouver. If you are not able to join us, the Vancouver event will be available as a podcast. Sign-up here to get notification of its release.
