VIRTUAL LYCEUM: UPDATE ON CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE ADIRONDACKS
November 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The Grange turns INSIDE / OUT this fall to provide movies, lectures, music and more via Zoom and other digital platforms. To help keep everyone healthy, we’ll be presenting great programs that you can be part of wherever you are.
Virtual Lyceum lecture #6: Climate change is happening: Ice on our lakes has been forming later and melting earlier. The main basin of Lake Champlain failed to freeze completely only 3 times during the 19th century. Now it is ice-free more often than not. Our wildlife is responding to earlier springs, from migrating salamanders to robins. Local weather stations show that our rainstorms are becoming stronger. What does this mean for the flora, fauna and people of our region? Dr. Curt Stager, author, researcher, and professor at Paul Smith’s College, will look at current data and research in the Adirondacks.
The Virtual Lyceum series is made possible through the generous support of the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation.
The Fall Lyceum lectures will be presented via Zoom. You can access them through your computer, smartphone, or by dialing in on a regular phone (audio only). You must register IN ADVANCE so we can email you the Zoom link. You can register for the entire series or for an individual lecture. We will record the lectures and make them available later if you can’t watch them live.
