Fall Gathering

The KCP Fall Gathering & AGM serves as one of the primary venues to connect and re-connect KCP partners from across the region.

The 2021 KCP Fall Gathering & AGM will take place October 15, 2021.

This year the Fall Gathering will be a one-day virtual conference due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the Kootenays.

Registration is now closed. 

Please contact KCP Program Director Juliet Craig at juliet@kootenayconservation.ca.

The Kootenay Conservation Program Fall Gathering serves as one of the primary opportunities to connect and re-connect KCP partners from across the region. The organizing theme for this year’s Fall Gathering is “Partnerships in Conservation”. We will showcase examples of Indigenous-led restoration and conservation projects, and explore considerations for planning and implementing restoration projects.

We’ll take advantage of this opportunity to have a short (1 hour) Annual General Meeting for KCP Partners. 

Highlights will include the following presentations:

  • Hunting Grounds Wetland Restoration, Norm Allard, Yaqan Nukiy: Restoration of this important wetland site in Creston.
  • Branden Bark for Bats, Dave DeRosa, Okanagan Nation Alliance: Innovative approach to creating tree roosts for bats.
  • Restoring Galena Creek, Shuswap Indian Band. Restoration of this important fish habitat in the Columbia Wetlands.
  • Ecosystem Restoration Practices in the Kootenays, Rebecca Wilson or Emily Pejic, Society of Ecological Restoration (SER): Sharing results from the Kootenay SER Practitioner Survey.
  • History of the Landscape, Wayne Choquette: Stewardship of the landscape with its record of past evolution and evidence of human activity

The KCP Annual Fall Gathering is a wonderful opportunity to learn about conservation projects in the Kootenays, share knowledge and information, and network with other organizations in the region.
