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 2020 KCP Fall Gathering & AGM is taking place October 2-3, 2020.

Online registration is now open!


For 2020, the KCP Fall Gathering & AGM  is taking a “hybrid” approach with a Virtual Conference using Zoom on Day 1, based on this year’s theme of “Conservation in a Time of Uncertainty: Adapting to Challenges”; and localized tours at 4 different sites across the Kootenays on Day 2, each in a different “Conservation Neighbourhood”: Kootenay Lake (Fish/Bear Lakes), Creston Valley (Yaqan Nukiy Wetlands), Columbia Valley (Galena Creek), and Elk Valley (Morrissey Meadows). The field tours will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants in light of COVID-19 physical distancing measures.


Through this hybrid approach, we’re excited to continue the KCP Fall Gathering tradition of offering professional development, knowledge sharing and networking, and we hope that cost savings through reduced travel costs will encourage participation in both the virtual and localized gatherings.

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.
