What does all of this mean, and how will it affect us? Join us and our guest speakers for three engaging talks discussing the Effects of Weather and Stormwater Responses, Species Shifts and Habitat Changes and the Effects of Wildfire and Climate.

In May, Climate Conversations will continue with Species Shifts and Habitat Changes. We will have two speakers, Lynn Helbrecht and Jessica Halofsky.
