February First Tuesday: Climate Change Indicator Species of the Methow
Tuesday, February 4th, 7 – 8pm
Venue: Winthrop Barn, Free, No RSVP required
Dynamic father-daughter duo Scott and Amy Fitkin will share their knowledge of local indicator species whose populations are sensitive to impacts of climate change. They will cover how climate change is threatening critical habitat for pika, Wolverine, and Lynx. How animal behavior may change over time and what we can do to steward climate change resilience in our own backyards. Scott is the WDFW Okanogan District Wildlife Biologist. Amy is Methow-grown and currently working towards her Master's in Environmental Education through Huxley College of the Environment at Western Washington University. We are excited to learn from these two and hope you will join us!
