Talks on the Rock: Tessa Francis | Nature's future in Puget Sound

$22 General
$20 Senior
Youth (18-) FREE (must reserve ticket)

TUESDAY May 21 | 7:30pm

How will climate change, population growth, and development affect Puget Sound and the natural resources we care about? Growing human population and changing climate threaten habitats and species, as well as the social and economic systems that depend on them. A major challenge is to understand how future conditions, and our decisions to manage them, will affect the interconnected natural and human systems in our region. In this talk, I will share how a connected terrestrial-freshwater-marine-human system modeling framework being developed at the University of Washington's Puget Sound Institute will help us understand the interactive effects of future threats to nature in our region, and evaluate their impacts on ecological, social, and economic benefits we depend on.
