2019 BC Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research Workshop


BC ACARN Workshop

Registration is now open for the Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research provincial workshop taking place December 2-3, 2019 in Kelowna, BC. For the 4th annual provincial workshop hosted by the BC Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research Network, we are offering more ways for producers, policymakers, researchers and students to exchange ideas, network and hear the latest results from adaptation-focused research. This year’s workshop features:

  • An afternoon of producer-focused sessions with BC researchers and producers discussing practices they have been testing in the field to improve soil health, store carbon, reduce the impacts of pests and disease, and adapt to increasingly variable weather. Sessions are geared to tree fruit and wine grape production.
  • Featured keynote speakers bringing expertise from the Washington state tree fruit industry (Dr. Lee Kalcsits) and the California wine industry (Dr. Ann Thrupp) into BC conversations on agricultural adaptation research and strategies
  • A banquet dinner will follow the keynote presentations to provide more time for networking & getting to know all of the great people interested in agricultural adaptation
  • A full day focused on collaboration between researchers and research partners to provide time to advance collaborative research and discuss solutions to challenges like data sharing and extension strategies.
