The Ecosystems Section of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development is delivering a one-day workshop for qualified professionals (QPs; mainly Registered Professional Biologists) working in and around water and with species and ecosystems at risk (SEAR) in the Thompson Okanagan Region. This workshop is considered an important piece of the Ecosystems Section’s outreach strategy on key Resource Management initiatives to this audience. QPs will gain knowledge and skills in relevant and emerging topics related to working around water and SEAR as a result of the workshop, which supports the professional reliance model. Local government staff, government employees and professionals with other accreditations are also invited to attend. The free workshop runs 9 am to 4 pm at Predator Ridge Resort, 301 Village Centre Place in Vernon. Morning/afternoon coffee breaks and lunch are included. Register here. Space is limited.
