Weather, Climate Change, and the Environments of the Future

Saturday, October 2  Adult Program

The unusual weather of the last several years is here to stay, thanks to climate change driven by global warming.  In our area, springs are now quite cool before quickly changing to the warmth of summer, and rain and snow events are more sporadic but heavier in quantity.  Nationally, hurricanes are more powerful, winter storms and more severe, and fires are burning across western states.  Director of Environmental Education Wendy Jones reviews the science behind climate change, what it means for us here in Wisconsin and beyond, and how plants, animals, and environments are only going to change even more as we move forward.  Say goodbye to the normal of your childhood!
