New Yorkers! Westchester’s Teatown Offers High Level Climate Change Symposium

What better place to hold a climate change symposium than at Teatown, one of New York State’s most popular nature preserves. Just a train ride away, Teatown attracts city residents to this forested oasis in the Lower Hudson Valley. The preserve boasts 15 miles of forested trails for hiking and a two-acre island refuge for over 230 species of native wildflowers. The symposium is part of Teatown’s public programs.

Teatown’s Climate Change Symposium is on Saturday, December 9 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, and features high profile climatologists, policy and research experts who will discuss the impact of climate change, sustainability and future efforts to withstand the possible impacts.

  • Cynthia Rosenzweig, Senior Research Scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, will talk about the science and impacts of climate change
  • Michael Gerrard, Director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School, will present on current climate change policy
  • Leo Wiegman, Croton Energy Group Inc, will talk about how to thrive while we undergo “climate disruption” and examples of proactive ways that people are responding to a changing climate.
