Wildfire and Climate Change in the Gulf Islands

Designed, in collaboration with David Osborne and Katie Dentry of FireSmart Saturna, a series of workshops regarding wildfire risk enhanced by climate change in rural island communities.

  • Exploring how the changes we see in the lands and waters of the Salish Sea connect to global climate change mechanisms. Specifically, how different climate mitigation and adaptation efforts impact water and fire issues of the region.

  • Naming what actions individuals can take to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in an effort to reduce global warming. Mitigation actions included in the session addressed issues such as forest health, blue carbon, and land use planning

  • Investigating what actions we can take to adapt to the impacts of climate change such as increased fire risk, reduced fresh water, and increased storm activity.
