7th Generation Supper: From Glaciers to the Estuary
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
5:45 - 8:00 p.m.
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
The evening’s presentation begins our new series with the Skagit Climate Science Consortium. From Glaciers to the Estuary: Climate Change Impacts on Water in NW Washington. As temperatures increase and precipitation patterns shift in response to climate change, many important water resources in northern Puget Sound are affected. Come hear Jon Riedel (National Park Service) and Roger Fuller (Western Washington University) discuss what’s happening with our glaciers and snow pack, and what this means for river floods and summer low flows. We will discuss impacts on the humans, plants and animals that live in the area, and inspire you to consider how we can respond, as individuals and as a community.
