Disappearing glaciers is topic

Mar 13, 2014

Ever wonder what climate change is all about; about Killer Whales; how glaciers created Puget Sound; how stormwater affects Puget Sound; or what good are trees?

If so, join WSU Snohomish County Extension Beach Watchers every first Wednesday night, now through June, for presentations by local experts.

Coming on April 2:  Explore “Puget Sound Glacial History” with Dr. Jon Riedel, Geologist, North Cascades National Park.

Puget Sound’s glacial history will focus on the sensitive and dramatic response of glaciers to climate change during the past 10,000 years.

Evidence presented will include modern monitoring of glaciers, old photographs and maps, and geologic data.

The rapid loss of glaciers in the past century will be linked with changes to summer flow on Skagit River.

The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday April 2, in the Common Room at Mukilteo City Hall, 11930 Cyrus Way, Mukilteo.

No registration is required for this free event.
