Presenter: David Sauchyn, PhD. Professor for the University of Regina, Director and Researcher at Prairie Adaptation Research Collaborative (PARC)
Join us as we chat with Dr. David Sauchyn, a professor at the University of Regina and Director and Researcher with PARC. Dr. Sauchyn’s research interests include the climate and hydrology of the past millennium and how this knowledge can help our understanding of future climate and water supplies as well as planned adaptation to minimize adverse effects of climate change on the western Canadian landscape.
Rural Routes to Climate Solutions (#RR2CS) is a program of the Stettler Learning Centre. We empower Alberta’s agricultural producers and the communities they live in with climate solutions. Our partners include Food Water Wellness Foundation, Young Agrarians, Organic Alberta and many farmers across the province!
