The University of Northern BC’s Quesnel River Research Centre in Likely is inviting the public to attend one or both of two Science Town Hall meetings coming up this month in Horsefly and Williams Lake.
These meetings are a chance for community members who work, live, and/or enjoy recreation in the Quesnel River Watershed to discuss land uses that may affect the way they use the watershed with the research centre faculty and staff.
“The goal of these workshops is to explore our future research directions and potential collaborative projects with members of the community,” says Sam Albers the new research centre manager.
The first meeting hosted by the Horsefly River Roundtable will be held at the Horsefly Community Hall, Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m.
A second town hall meeting hosted by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists and Scout Island Nature Centre will be held in the Thompson Rivers University cafeteria in Williams Lake on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Albers asks that people who plan to attend one or both of the meetings to reserve a seat by giving him a call at 250-790-2031 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The town hall meetings are a follow-up to the Stakeholder Workshop Series (http://www.unbc.ca/qrrc/stakeholder_workshop_series.html ).
