September 29, 2:30 pm, Climate Change: The Changing Landscape

Ram Shrivastava and Bruce Gilman will give a talk about Climate Change and Landscape, followed by a community conversation on the same topic. This program will engage the community, inviting participants to consider and discuss the effects of climate change on the local landscape, including changes over the past 100 years and  the expected changes to local landscape going forward. This special program, while different from our others, brings important and significant content to the community. The community conversation will give the audience a chance to participate, ask questions, learn, and find ways to effect change within their own community.
