Come to a New Mexico PBS Science Café! A clip from an episode of NOVA scienceNOW, Nature or a comparable program will be screened. An expert on the topic will attend to answer questions & have an open discussion with the audience.

Healthy Forests, Clean Water

Climate change effects have already dramatically altered New Mexico’s desert, montane and alpine ecosystems. Diminishing snowpack, hotter temperatures and extended drought along with frequent, high-severity wildfires and post-fire flooding pose an increasing threat to the Rio Grande. While climate change is inevitable, despair is not.
Come to the October New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of PBS Sky Island and then join in a discussion with Laura McCarthy, Director of Conservation, The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico. McCarthy will discuss efforts of the Rio Grande Water Fund to restore essential forested lands and streams to improve their resiliency and ensure a continuous supply of clean water for New Mexico communities.
