Humans are changing Earth’s natural systems in rapid and unprecedented ways. This has propelled our planet into a new geologic era: the anthropocene. How do we navigate these changes we’ve caused, where can we have positive impacts…and where do we find hope? We’re bringing in six experts with a diversity of perspectives to speak on these very things. Join us!

Our second fall speaker is Jedediah Brodie, John J. Craighead Endowed Chair of Conservation Division of Biological Sciences at the University of Montana. Join us for his lecture, Biodiversity in a Changing Climate. Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, with huge implications for plants and animals around the world. The natural ecosystems of the future may be quite different from those of today. Learn about some of the things we can be doing right now to ameliorate the impacts of climate change on biodiversity.
