Natural History Night:Documenting Environmental Change

February 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Fraser Building, University of Victoria

Documenting EnvironmentalChange with the Local Environmental Observer (LEO) Network 

The myriad manifestations of global environmental change throughout ecosystems on every scale are tending to outpace institutional or centralized approaches to understand these changes.Citizen science approaches, however, are rapidly gaining capacity, raising the prospect that a popular resurgence of interest in natural history could play a crucial role in understanding and adapting to the rapid environmental change that is shaping the future of life on Earth. Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies Tom Okey will invite us to learn about, engage, and participate in the Local Environmental Observer (LEO) Network. LEO can be explored at leonetwork.org

We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159 of theFraser Building at the University of Victoria. Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to bring a friend. Note: UVic parking is $3.
