Droughts, wildfires, threatened salmon runs. When you consider acute environmental issues like these, climate change feels less abstract and more like an everyday reality.

How is our community preparing for climate change so that future generations will be able to enjoy a quality, enriching life in Central Washington?

Learn more about what is being done on Tuesday, February 20, at 5:30 p.m. when CWU’s Living With Climate Change series continues. The event, titled “Preparing for Climate Change,” will take place in Dean Hall, room 104, on the CWU campus. Virtual participation is also encouraged via Zoom

Resource managers and other leaders in our community have been developing strategies for how to address these impacts in ways that make us more resilient. At Tuesday’s event, we will hear from three community leaders to discuss how we are preparing for climate change:

  • Heidi Behrends-Cerniwey (City Manager, City of Ellensburg),
  • Kevin Haydon (Yakima Basin Integrated Plan Project Manager and Environmental Planner, Department of Ecology), and
  • Rose Shriner-Beaton (PhD candidate, University of Idaho and Community Resilience Coordinator—Kittitas County, Department of Natural Resources).

This event, and the others in this series, are being developed in partnership with the CWU EthicsLab, the Environmental Studies Program, the Office of Sustainability, and the Museum of Culture and Environment.
