Wednesday Oct 26: Back to Basics: Climate Change 7 PM to 9 PM Nathan Taxel, Outdoor Education Coordinator Today, the words “climate change” and “global warming” are everywhere, but what do they really mean? In this classroom program, we will leave our politics at the door and focus on the basic science needed to understand climate change.
We’ll discuss what is universally agreed upon (among climate scientists) and what isn’t. We’ll also explore the effects of climate change on our regional economy, environment, health and food supply. Then, learn what you can do to help.
A tour of the Museum’s Climate Change Exhibit is included. Members $12 Nonmembers $15 Limit 20
