Fall Gathering

Registration is now open!

Our 2018 Fall Gathering is scheduled for October 12-13 in Nelson in the West Kootenay.


The KCP Fall Gathering & AGM serves as one of the primary vehicles to connect and re-connect KCP partners from across the region. The organizing theme for this year’s Fall Gathering is Conservation in the Context of Climate Change. We will explore habitats and species of the Kootenays and how to work together for ecosystem resilience.

Day 1 will take place at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson and Day 2 will comprise of a field tour with visits to local restoration sites, species at risk habitats, and climate change resilience projects. We offer the choice to attend either Day 1 or Day 2, or the full two days.

The Prestige Lake Resort is offering a special rate for KCP Fall Gathering guests until October 1 on a limited number of rooms. Please let front desk know you are booking from the Kootenay Conservation Room Block. Call 250-352-7222.

The Fall Gathering is free to attend and all KCP Partners and members of the public are invited, but seats do fill up quickly – especially on the field tour – so be sure to register soon.
