Winter Webinar Recordings

KCP supports developing the technical capacity of partners to become leaders and innovators in implementing biodiversity conservation.

To this end, KCP offers a webinar series each year to facilitate the sharing of technical resources among partners and others so that local conservation activities consider the best available information and practices.

KCP 2023 Winter Webinar Series — “Foundations of Resilience – Understanding departures from historical ecosystems and adapting for resilient futures” in partnership with the CMIAE CREDtalks season 7


Ecosystems have been drastically transformed over the past 100-200 years. These changes underpin many modern ecological challenges including extreme fire behaviour, insect infestations, drought, disease, habitat loss, and a biodiversity crisis. As these systems continue to change, there is a need to understand both where we came from, and where we are going. Management systems and actions interact with these changes and shape potential futures providing some opportunities to restore ecosystem resilience. However, restoring landscapes to increase their resilience, and adapt to a changing climate is complex. This requires new ideas, new collaborations, and new ways of thinking about the restoration of processes across systems, across disciplines, and across scales. Recognizing this, we have invited a diverse group of scientists and practitioners to share their lessons and findings. In this series, we draw on patterns from the past, challenges in the present, and scenarios for the future, to explore adapting for resilience in the Columbia Mountains Region.

This series featuring seven sessions wrapped up on March 16th, 2023. See below to access the recordings!

Thanks to the generous support of the Columbia Basin Trust and CMIAE, this series will be offered free of charge.
