Community Water Forum

About the Community Water Forum:

Researchers at UBC’s Okanagan campus are investigating watershed management issues, aquatic ecosystems and the role water plays in natural processes, agriculture, recreation, and urban development. As part of our continued support of the Leading Edge Endowment Fund (LEEF) BC Regional Innovation Chair in Water Resources and Ecosystem Sustainability (Dr. John Janmaat) and the Endowed Research Chairs in Watershed Management (Dr. David Scott and Dr. Adam Wei), we will be hosting two annual Community Water Forum events that will take place in the fall and spring. The forum is designed to provide an opportunity for open, solution-oriented dialogue on topics of shared interest and concern to the community.

Date/Times: To be determined.
Location: Okanagan Centre for Innovation Theatre (460 Doyle Ave.)
