KELOWNA, BC — A community town hall on the “future of our forests” is planned for UBC Okanagan. Planned by the Interior Watershed Taskforce, which includes the Peachland Watershed Protection Alliance, the event will bring together a panel of speakers. “It’s more important than ever to learn about the measures we can take to safeguard our forests,” says event organizers. “The B.C. community needs informing. Trees can no longer be seen as only dimensional lumber profits.” Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Mike Morris will serve as keynote speaker. He has been critical in recent years of the impacts of clearcutting on the ecosystem. …The town hall will take place Saturday, April 13 at UBC Okanagan in the arts and sciences centre.
