This role involves facilitation, coaching and mentoring amongst the key players involved with the broader forest sector. Garry will speak about the the major shifts that BC is going through with respect to managing forests and lands, what initiatives are driving these shifts (e.g., FRPA changes, Together For Wildlife, Forest Revitalization, Modernized Land Use Planning), preliminary visioning around where we are going, and what the Hunters for BC SCI and you as individuals might do to support these shifts. He will also be gathering your thoughts on things that you feel need to be worked through as we move through these major shifts.hoNORARY DOCTORATE UBC THE NARWHAL AND DR. GARRY MERKEL
