Every summer the Coastal Wildfire Service produces a series of bulletins outlining the fires, the risks, prevention and other news. We will be posting them here as they come out.

Read this excellent article on the controversy of the Laburnum Wetlands and that the town has allowed two development lots to be built on it.

Dr. Jeff Lewis's Presentation
At the Coffee time on Thursday, February 13, Dr. Jeff Lewis from Vancouver Island University gave a fascinating presentation on climate change and its effects on our community. He has allowed us to share his slide show on our website so those who were unable to attend can look at it.
In his email he said the following:
"In case you or other QBRA members are interested, VIU’s annual ACER Climate Change symposium is scheduled for Saturday, May 2 and will be held on the Nanaimo campus (roughly 9am – 2pm). The theme this year is Climate Change: The Economic Imperative (tentative wording). We have lined up Dr Mark Jaccard (SFU) as the keynote speaker.
The rest of the agenda is still a work in progress, but will include a few additional speakers and workshops.
The event is FREE and OPEN to the Public. It will also include refreshments and lunch."
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
