Event Details

Pete Geddes, Managing Director, American Prairie Reserve

Kristine Tompkins, Founder and President, Conservacion Patagonica, Former CEO, Patagonia

Whendee Silver, Professor of Environmental Science, UC Berkeley 

Forests are often at the center of conversations about using natural systems to capture and store carbon pollution, but research shows grasslands and prairies are similarly important. How they are managed can potentially have a big impact on storing greenhouse gases so they don’t enter the atmosphere. 

Nudged by researchers and environmentalists, ranchers are learning new ways to handle livestock and the forage they graze on. Conservationists are also having to rethink their strategies as the changing climate pushes species up mountains, while others move toward the poles. 

How is climate affecting land conservation in the United States and other parts of the world? What is California doing to turn rangelands and cows grazing on them from part of the problem to part of the solution? Join conservationists and a researcher for a discussion about protecting ecosystems in the era of climate disruption. 

Location: SF Club Office

Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. networking reception

Cost: $20 non-members, $12 members, $7 students (with valid ID)

Also know: The speakers and audience will be videotaped for future broadcast on the Climate One TV show on KRCB TV 22 on Comcast and DirecTV.
