**The Science Summit is now sold out! Thank you to all who have registered. There are lots of other opportunities to get involved - see www.onetam.org. We hope to see you on the mountain!**
Mt. Tam—beautiful and burgeoning with plant and animal life—is one of the region’s greatest natural treasures. Located in an internationally-recognized biodiversity hotspot, the mountain’s complex terrain, and location between the sea and the inland Bay Area, creates a remarkably diverse array of climates and habitats.
However, despite its ecological riches and its protected status, Mt. Tam is threatened by invasive species, forest pathogens, wildfire, and climate change. The agencies that steward the land, and the community that loves it, all have a role to play in helping keep this place healthy and vibrant—but how?
Join us as the four land management agencies on Mt. Tam, together with scientists and other experts from around the Bay Area, share their knowledge and expertise to try to answer the question: How healthy is Mt. Tam?
Friday the 28th is focused on engaging natural resource managers and the scientific community, but it is open to members of the public as well.
Saturday the 29th especially reaches out to conservation and recreation groups, teachers, and other interested community members with short, focused "lightning” talks, and an interactive discussion about the essential role the public plays in caring for Mt. Tam.
Both days are open to anyone who wants to come, and you may choose to attend one or both days. Please consider submitting a poster for display during the poster sessions, or a photo for the photo contest!
