Ice, ice, maybe: climate change and how it’s changing our landscapes.

The Eugene Pod of 500 Women Scientists is hosting a science event on the effects of climate change. The event will feature a hands-on activity and time for the audience to speak with local women scientists, two speakers presenting some of their research into glaciers, snow pack, and climate, and Q&A about what it’s like to be a scientist. Featured speakers include Dr. M Jackson, a glaciologist serving as U.S. Fulbright Ambassador and an Arctic Expert for the National Geographic Society, and Dr. Anne Nolin, a professor of Geography, Environmental Sciences, and Marine Resource Management at OSU. Suggested donation for attendees is $5, and tickets are sold at the door. Raffle tickets may also be purchased at the event for some local give-aways. Event proceeds will be donated to the Climate Reality Project: https://www.climaterealityproject.org/. 500 Women Scientists is a science advocacy group that aims to improve diversity, equity, and communication in science: https://500womenscientists.org/.
