About the Community Educator

Our Changing Climate seeks to educate youth about the difference between our natural, long term climate fluctuations and
anthropogenic (human influenced) rapid climate change. Let's debunk myths around certain terminology and give real scientific
proof to our point of view. We will discover the difference between weather and climate and look at a climate resource to
understand how our local climate is changing. We will venture to a nearby ecosystem (river, wetlands, forest or farm) and discuss how it is already and may be further affected by climate change in the future.

Finally let's work together let's look at ways that society/new technologies and even ourselves can contribute to mitigate or lessen
our impact on Earth.

Depending on student age we will adapt the key ecosystem we will study on our walk: for K-4 the forest works well, talking about
increased risk of forest fires; for grades 5-8, looking at rivers, flooding, and soil degradation of farming; and for grades 9-12, talking
about wetland and carbon sinks.
