Climate Change and Our Shifting Sense of Place

Climate Change and Our Shifting Sense of Place

From Park E-ventures, March 2014

From March 28-29, participants in the upcoming BioBlitz will be racing throughout the Golden Gate National Parks to survey the area’s biodiversity by finding and identifying as many species of plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms as possible. During similar events around the country, observers are discovering that species populations are shifting and changing as a result of the rapid environmental changes of the 21st century.

Will we discover the same is happening in our own backyard? What happens to our sense of place as the natural world around is rapidly changing? And how does it impact us as a community?

The need for action on climate change and biodiversity loss is recognized across the United States and around the world. To make progress in combating and adapting to climate change, and halting the loss of biodiversity and degradation of ecosystems, it is vital to understand how these phenomena impact our daily lives and the lands we love.

Join the Institute at the Golden Gate for a BioBlitz Speaker Series event where panelists from the University of California-Berkeley, Free Range Studios, and Green for All will help lead conversations on how our changing climate is—and will continue—affecting the connections we have with the environment. Help shape the discussion and learn how you can take action in your own backyard to protect the parks and open spaces that we all cherish.

Join us for this illuminating free event on Thursday, March 13 at 6 pm. For more information and to RSVP, visit the event page.

Each professional football season unofficially begins with all the Australian Available. There are usually always a couple of smaller tourneys in early on January to start up a time of year, but only once the participants take their particular places on the first Fantastic Slam with the year can the actions really heat.
