Marylhurst science professor Kyle Dittmer will present a practical real-world view on three environmental crises that seem to be happening at once — and steps you can take to make a better world.
- Immerse yourself in a thought-provoking and factual view on past and future climate change and its impact on the Pacific Northwest.
- Discuss Columbia River salmon, the complex causes of their decline and current status, and what can be done to save this icon of our region.
- Examine the earthquake that struck Japan in 2011, lessons learned and implications for the Pacific Northwest.
Luncheon Speaker: Salmon and First Foods
Gerald Lewis, a member of the Yakama Nation and a member of the Fish & Wildlife Committee of the Yakama Tribal Council, will offer a tribal perspective.
