NATURAL HISTORY NIGHT 

Keeping the Peace: Maintaining Habitat Connectivity in BC’s Northeast

The Mighty Peace—it is where the Boreal Plains meet the Northern Boreal Mountains; where the Rocky Mountain’s Hart Range intersects with the cool waters of the Peace River.  This key connection is under great pressure. Oil and gas development, coal and coalbed methane development, forestry, mining, and wind energy development, as well as the recently approved Site C hydro dam, act as barriers to wildlife movement and threaten the integrity of the landscape. Join Y2Y’s Peace Regional Coordinator Tim Burkhart for a journey across this incredible landscape, including footage and photos from a 2018 expedition into the Wild Hart Ranges with the Royal BC Museum, and learn about how you can help keep the Peace. 

We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159 of the Fraser Building, University of Victoria. Everyone is welcome. Note: Uvic parking is $3.
