Old-Growth Forests Webinar Series – April 11-May 16
Thanks to overwhelming interest, this webinar series has been expanded to 8 weeks!
Learn how you can defend old-growth forests in a fun and interactive info series!
Vancouver Island’s old-growth forests are being logged at an alarming rate, three times faster than tropical rainforests, and the BC government is not responding appropriately to this crisis. We need more British Columbians armed with information and ready to take action to protect what remains of these unique ecosystems.
That’s why Sierra Club BC is offering a live weekly webinar course on the state of old-growth forests on Vancouver Island, forest policy in BC, and what you can do to step up pressure on the decision-makers allowing this short-sighted destruction to continue.
Join Sierra Club BC forest campaigners and experts in the fields of forestry and conservation.
Topics will include the relationship between climate change and forests, debunking forestry myths and misinformation, Indigenous jurisdiction and more.
Webinars can be attended by computer or phone (computer and internet is required to see speakers and slides). A mic and camera is recommended for participation in the question-and-answer periods.
This eight-part webinar series will be offered on Thursdays from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm PST, April 11-May 30. Webinar recordings will be made available to webinar series registrants.
