Friday Forum – Local Climate Change
January 11 @ 12:00pm
The public is invited to take part in the first Wonderlust Friday Forum of the new year, “Assessing & Addressing Our Changing Climate: A Local View,” set for January 11th in the community room from noon–1:30pm.
Bozeman Deputy Mayor and Mayor-Elect Chris Mehl will present an overview of climate change in the Gallatin Valley – how it is affecting our natural resources and landscape, the ways the city is addressing its impacts, and how we can work together to build a more resilient community. A Q&A portion will follow the presentation.
In addition to his public duties, Mehl is the Policy Director at Headwaters Economics, an independent nonprofit research group focusing on community development and land management decisions. Chris and his wife, Laura, have lived in Bozeman since 2001.
The monthly speaker series is sponsored by MSU Wonderlust, a nonprofit organization affiliated with Montana State University’s Extended University and hosted by the Library. It is open to the public. There is no fee to attend or registration needed. Brown bag lunches are encouraged. Coffee and tea are provided. Join in! For more information, please visit http://montanawonderlust.org.
