Citizen Science: Cape Farewell – Greenland’s Wilderness of Rock & Ice

May 5, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us for a talk plus Q&A about a 1971 exploration of the icy peaks of Southwest Greenland – travelling by sea kayak to make several first ascents in this stormy, glacial wilderness, now threatened by global warming.

Presenter Ian Walton spent ten weeks here as a student before coming to Santa Cruz where he has lived for the last forty years. Ian will discuss the changing arctic from an adventurer’s point of view, and why this matters for all of us.

Citizen Science is a collaboration between the Santa Cruz Public Libraries; the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History (SCMNH), the Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery (SCCMOD) and the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC).

We invite you to join us every first Thursday of the month for a presentation and Q&A with local experts and researchers in the field discussing life science, ecology, geology, genetics, climatology and more. Let’s connect, inspire and inform each other!
