One of the first steps in tackling climate change seems deceptively simple—talk about it. But that’s actually hard to do. Many people never even consider conversation as a strategy because it doesn’t, in itself, reduce greenhouse gasses or end a drought or address food waste or right social wrongs. Without candid, respectful conversation, we simply won’t come together to make the societal changes necessary to halt and reverse these alarming trends.

The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming is proud to present Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, chief scientist and climatologist for TNC, at the Center for the Arts in Jackson on the evening of Monday, August 22. Dr. Hayhoe is highly skilled at turning conversation about climate change into an opportunity for connection and shared action. Then join us on Tuesday, August 23, at the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Cook Auditorium for a science and storytelling symposium followed by a tour of the botanical garden and volunteer activity. Mark your calendars and register below for this not-to-be-missed events!
