Bay Area alumni and friends, join us for an amazing evening at the California Academy of Sciences where we will hear from Professor Jessica Hellmann about the ecology of climate-change adaptation.
Professor Jessica Hellmann, leading climate-change ecologist and director of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, will talk about ways that humans can help natural systems adapt, persist, and perhaps even thrive in a changing climate, both for the benefit of biodiversity conservation and for the valuable services that ecosystems provide. Some of the adaptation techniques Dr. Hellmann will discuss are controversial and untested, with broad economic and ethical implications. Confronting these controversies is critical, however, to fully realize the enormous potential of adaptation to help us build a sustainable, livable future.
5:30 p.m. Short private tour of the California Academy of Sciences led by Executive Director Jonathan Foley, Ph.D. (Please enter via the business entrance at 75 Nancy Pelosi Drive)
6:30 p.m. Reception - Board Room
7:00 p.m. Dr. Hellmann talk
