You are invited to join us for PNNL’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series – “Critical Habitat in the Salish Sea – Understanding Eelgrass for Restoration and Resilience,” a presentation by John Vavrinec.
Seagrasses are in decline globally causing concern for the impacts of losses on ecosystems and forcing managers to seek solutions to reverse the trend. Locally, eelgrass restoration has become a priority and many efforts are being taken throughout the Salish Sea to increase eelgrass abundance. We have been employing a multi-step approach to eelgrass restoration to help DNR reach their goal of 20% more eelgrass and while progress is being made, success is never guaranteed. The restoration process is continually evolving as we learn from each project – whether a success or a failure. However, seeking solutions for individual problems, forcing the restoration process to evolve, and adaptively managing restoration activities continues to improve chances for success and meeting restoration objectives in the Salish Sea.
The virtual webinar is taking place on Zoom. Please share this information with anyone else who might be interested.
Workshop: Create Your Own Climate Future – Wednesday, May 20, 2020
From 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Online Zoom workshop – register via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent a link to the Zoom event
Free to participate
In this engaging workshop, participants propose climate solutions such as energy efficiency, carbon pricing, vehicle electrification, reducing deforestation and methane emissions, and carbon dioxide removal. The facilitator Steve Ghan then tests these approaches individually and in combination using the En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulation model so that participants can see the impact on global temperature and other factors. Through this interactive process, you will improve your understanding of climate/energy system dynamics.
Join us to experience what it’s like to create your own climate future using grounded conversations; the resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.
