Climate Change and Horse Keeping Conference

On Friday, April 25th the King Conservation District and Horses for Clean Water held a ground breaking conference on Climate Change and Horse Keeping- Managing the Uncertainty. Experts converged to discuss the climate change trends in the Pacific Northwest and the potential impacts on the agricultural community, including an exploration of how our changing climate may drive changes in land management practices and horse keeping.

The conference was videotaped and is available for viewing in six separate sessions.  The video footage can be accessed selecting the following links. You will be directed to a new web site where you can enter the password “horse” to gain access to the videos.
