Changes in our Local Climate − Past , Present and Future
We will kick-off our autumn season with guest speaker Dr. David Clements, Biology Professor at Trinity Western University.
David will take us on a journey through time, exploring the past, present and future of our local climate. The past will be examined through his research on bogs and other habitats in the Metro Vancouver area. Perspectives on the present are revealed by looking at how trees like the red cedars in Burnaby’s Central Park are becoming victims of climate change and what we can do to make forests more resilient. And viewing into the future will explore how Regional Parks can preserve biodiversity and provide vital ecological services while adapting to climate change.
David is an engaging speaker who writes a regular column called “Green Beat” for the Langley Advance Times newspaper. The Burnaby Now recently published an article describing his Central Park project on climate change resilience, and his September 17th presentation to BMN will include highlights of that study’s findings.
