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.
