Snowy Owl by Jeff Ott

Warming of our atmosphere due to increasing CO2 concentration was anticipated more than 150 years ago. Professor Randall Boone, CSU, will address the nature of greenhouse gases and the means that they warm the atmosphere and review observed and anticipated changes from our changing climate. He will describe some changes seen in bird geographic ranges, the timing of events in their life histories, and ways that bird species may interact in a changing climate. Prof. Boone will briefly describe the scope of changes needed to reduce emissions, for which he remains optimistic.

Randall Boone is a Professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability and Senior Research Scientist within the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, Colorado State University.

NOTE: Due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic, it may become necessary to cancel the in-person portion of our meeting and conduct the meeting entirely via Zoom. If you plan to attend the meeting in person, please check our website, Instagram, or Facebook page the day of the meeting to see if the in-person gathering has been canceled. We hope that won't be necessary.
