Join this Climate Hub webinar featuring two local initiatives focused on enhancing our natural habitats.
We'll be joined by the Kootenay Native Plant Society to hear about their Pollination Pathway Climate Adaptation Initiative that is working to enhance plant-pollinator communities. We'll also hear from a local resident who is hoping that Nelson will become a certified Bird Friendly City to ensure our community is a safe haven for birds rather than a source of threats.
The Kootenay Native Plant Society aims to conserve native plant biodiversity for future generations. The twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate disruption threaten native plant diversity and the animals, fungi, and microbes that depend on them. The Pollination Pathway Climate Adaptation Initiative aims to protect and connect wild plants and pollinators in the West Kootenay area.
Valerie Huff, KNPS Program Manager, will present about the central importance of native plants in supporting wildlife, including birds. Rewilding with native plants, and connecting to the local genetic diversity of wild plants, is something we can all do to mitigate biodiversity loss in the face of climate disruption.
