Challenges for the Colorado River Basin

We invite you to join us for part one of the University of Colorado - Boulder webinar series as we discuss the effects of climate change on our resources and natural environment. Two webinars will take place this fall, followed by two more in Spring 2014 will cover extreme weather attribution and preparedness.

Part one on October 16 focuses on the Colorado River Watershed in an insightful and informative discussion with Dr. Doug Kenney and Jeff Lukas, both of University of Colorado - Boulder.

Doug is a senior research associate with the Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy and the Environment at University of Colorado Law School and director of the Western Water Policy Program.  He researches and writes extensively on water-related issues, including law and policy reform, river basin and watershed-level planning, water resource economics, and alternative strategies for solving complex resource issues.

Jeff is a senior research associate with the Western Water Assessment, NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory. His research over the last decade has centered on the use of multi-century tree-ring records to assess past climatic and hydrologic variability in Colorado and the interior West.

Part Two on November 13 will focus on the recent flood in colorado.  The panel will include three USGS hydrologists and will examine 'The Great Colorado Flood of 2013: 100 year, 1000 year, or next year?'  Register now for Part 2.

Educators: Participation in parts one and two of the Fall and/or Spring webinars qualifies for .5 continuing education credit when combined with supplementary materials and activities.

Who should attend?  All are welcome! Educators K-12 who would like to teach water conservation in the classroom.  The webinars will also be of interest to citizens and policy makers interested in learning more about the role of water conservation and how it is affected by climate change.

 Teachers who attend this webinar will be able to:  

  • think about water conservation and climate change in the context of student learning through supplemental materials.
  • get access to curriculum and materials that satisfy state & national science standards.
  • write about their lessons in practitioner journals with support from university educators.

Register here for Part One, and why not register for Part Two as well?  You'll receive a confirmation email, and a reminder closer to the event with a link to the webinar.

 

The “Climate Change For Educators” series is sponsored by University of Colorado Boulder, LearnMoreAboutClimate.org, and CIRES.
