Wetlands Institute Speaker Series: Wetland Hydrology & Climate Vulnerability



Event Date and Time
November 9th, 2021 at 9:30am PST to November 9th, 2021 at 11:00am PST

Join the Wetlands Education Program and Wetlands Workforce for the 2021 Wetlands Institute Speaker Series! This event is a series of free ($100+ value) workshops aimed to give participants important knowledge and skills about wetland stewardship, restoration and construction.

How is a wetland formed and changed based on  it’s  hydrology? How  vulnerable  are the  wetlands  when it comes to climate change?  Learn about the various types of wetlands and their hydrological functions in B.C. with senior hydrologists at  MacHydro  and explore the vuln erability of wetlands with the changing climate.    

Speaker Information:

Ryan MacDonald, Senior Hydrologist at MacHydro, Ph.D., P.Ag.

Ryan is a hydrologist specializing in process-based hydrology and the interactions between water resources and aquatic ecosystems. He uses this core knowledge to address complex issues at the intersection of human land use, climate, and the natural environment. This background enables him to pursue research questions that can be applied in a practical management context and provide guidance to federal, provincial, and First Nation governments.

Amy Goodbrand, Senior Hydrologist at MacHydro, Ph.D., P.Geo., R.P.Bio

Amy is a hydrologist with over a decade of research and consulting experience in mountain, boreal and prairie landscapes that is used to support science-based decision making and provide expert professional advice in watershed management. She combines her extensive field-based process knowledge with hydrological modelling to improve our understanding of how land use, natural disturbances and climate affect our water resources to ensure water security and forest integrity into the future.

You will need access to a desktop or laptop computer to participate in this workshop, and a stable internet connection is strongly advised.
