Arbor Group to host climate change event with Amy Snover on June 6th, 2018

Join University of Washington Climate Impacts Group Director, Amy Snover, for a briefing on the impacts of climate change for our region and communities. Dr. Snover will share the science behind what we know about when, where and how climate change will unfold in the Puget Sound area and across Washington state, as well as the impacts of concern for local communities, businesses and natural systems. She will describe efforts being made to both prevent and prepare for these effects, including examples of how concern about local impacts is catalyzing action by our city, county and state governments. She will discuss innovative new approaches to science and community partnership, pioneered by the Climate Impacts Group, that enable the development of new knowledge that supports local decision makers seeking to identify and address emerging climate risks.
