Bulkley Valley Research Centre - Science in the Public Interest

Seminar Series: October 2014 - April 2015

Each winter, from October through March, the Bulkley Valley Research Centre in partnership with Northwest Community College, presents a biweekly lunchtime seminar series.

The seminar series is becoming increasingly popular with members and the wider public. Kala Hooker, BVRC operations manager, who coordinated this year's series says, "It is great to see that the popularity of our lunchtime seminars is growing. Many of presentations were extremely well attended."

The BVRC endeavours to ensure the seminars are interesting and relevant, focussed on the latest developments in natural resources research and management.  This winter we heard talks from members, as well as special guests, on a wide range of topics, from discussions about western cedar deformity, genomics and caribou to a recent talk from energy expert and geoscientist, David Hughes on the proposed LNG industry in B.C.
