Climate expert in Nakusp

Hosted by Selkirk College, Mel Reasoner will share the latest on climate change.

Nakusp residents will have an opportunity to hear first-hand from climate change expert Mel Reasoner. During the  free interactive evening hosted by Selkirk College, Reasoner will share the latest on climate change, its local impacts and how communities like Nakusp can become more climate resilient.

The presentations are part of Columbia Basin Trust’s Communities Adapting to Climate Change Initiative, helping to translate complex climate change science into meaningful and actionable information for Basin communities. The Nakusp event takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 8, at the Learning Centre on 311 Broadway Street.

“Global temperature changes mean we can expect more extreme weather events, receding glaciers and changes to snowpacks, river flows, growing seasons and more,” said Reasoner. “This has important implications for communities in the Columbia Basin.”

Indeed, many communities worldwide are now planning for a future climate that will be different than what we’ve known and experienced in the past. While Reasoner will focus on climate science and impacts, there will also be opportunity to discuss leading-edge ideas and practices on how communities can adapt.

The evening is designed as engaging learning opportunities for people of all types, including intereste d individuals, local business owners, community groups, local government and elected officials.
