Climate Change & the Future of Outdoor Adventuring
Seattle, WA 98109
From rugged coastline to soaring mountains, lush rainforests to dry deserts, life in the Pacific Northwest comes with unparalleled natural beauty and an embarrassment of riches for outdoor adventures. But as climate change upends our ecosystem, outdoor enthusiasts are already rethinking their relationship to our surroundings. Amy Snover, Director of the UW Climate Impacts Group will join us for a conversation about the dramatically changing PNW landscape and what it means for our beloved outdoor recreation.
When you RSVP, you can also submit a question for our speakers. We will use those questions to shape the conversation.
Northwest Newsmakers brings you conversations with leaders shaping the region’s politics, arts, culture and industry.
