BROWN BAG LUNCH SERIES – CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE MIDWEST

MARCH 3, 10, 17-12:00 PM

BRING A SACK LUNCH AND JOIN TWC’S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, DR. JEFF CORNEY, FOR THIS THREE-PART SERIES EXPLORING CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE EFFECTS IT MAY HAVE ON OHIO’S NATURAL AREAS.  THE MIDWEST’S CLIMATE SUPPORTS THREE MAJOR ECOSYSTEMS: DECIDUOUS FORESTS, CONIFEROUS FORESTS, AND GRASSLANDS.  HOWEVER, DUE TO RISING LEVELS OF CARBON IN THE ATMOSPHERE, CLIMATOLOGISTS PREDICT SIGNIFICANT CLIMATE CHANGES OVER THE NEXT 100 YEARS.  AS EACH ECOSYSTEM IS COMPRISED OF PLANTS ADAPTED TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE ONLY WITHIN A LIMITED RANGE OF CLIMATIC CONDITIONS, SUCH CHANGES WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A CORRESPONDING SHIFT IN THE COMPOSITION OF ECOSYSTEMS THROUGHOUT THE REGION.  WILDLIFE DEPENDS ON THE FOOD, WATER AND SHELTER PROVIDED BY A REGION’S ECOSYSTEMS.  AS VEGETATION TYPES SHIFT AND WATER RESOURCE AVAILABILITY CHANGES, WILDLIFE HABITATS MAY BE ALTERED TO THE POINT WHERE SEVERAL ANIMALS IN THIS REGION MAY BE IMPACTED.

PART 1 – MARCH 3: WHY ARE WE SO CONCERNED ABOUT CARBON?

PART 2 – MARCH 10: HOW MIGHT CHANGES IN CLIMATE AFFECT ECOSYSTEMS?

PART 3 – MARCH 17: WHAT MAY BE THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON WILDLIFE?

MEMBERS: $10 EACH PART OR $20 FOR ALL THREE, NON-MEMBERS: $15 EACH PART OR $30 FOR ALL THREE.  ADVANCED REGISTRATION REQUIRED.  VISIT WWW.WILDERNESSCENTER.ORG FOR MORE INFORMATION, OR CALL 1-877-359-5235.
