Two free educational events are planned for the forum in the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre in February and April.
Dave Neads and Rosemary Neads will read from their book The Power of Dreams (Hancock House) on Feb. 25 at 1:30 p.m.
The book chronicles the couple’s adventures, uprooting themselves from urban life to live in the wilderness.
On April 1, residents are invited to learn about Resilient Coasts for Salmon as part of the Brant Wildlife Festival.
The event, which starts at 11 a.m., will provide information about opportunities to become involved through Green Shores training, shoreline mapping, or other outreach events. There will also be a Q & A session.
Resilient Coasts for Salmon is a collaborative five-year project lead by the Pacific Salmon Foundation in partnership with the Stewardship Centre for BC and other partners such as First Nations, local government and stewardship groups.
The key objectives include raising awareness about the importance of shorelines for wildlife habitat, best practices for the shoreline and how shorelines are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

The events are hosted by the Parksville branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL).
