Experts Talk Climate Change and River Nov. 25

Area experts make up library’s panel at Garrison School

The Desmond-Fish Library and the Garrison Union Free School present DFL Talks: The Hudson River and Climate Change, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 25.

This panel discussion will be moderated by Library Board Trustee Frederick Osborn III and will feature panelists Paul Gallay (president of Hudson Riverkeeper), Radley Horton (research scientist at Columbia University’s Center for Climate Systems Research), Eric Lind (director of Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary), Andrew Revkin (New York Times Dot Earth Blog writer and Pace University fellow) and Sacha Spector (director of conservation science for Scenic Hudson).

“With the recent People’s Climate March in the city, we were interested in looking at the potential effects of climate change in our own backyard,” said Library Director Jen McCreery. “We’re lucky to have a number of institutions and experts in the area who are dealing with the subject directly and we’re excited to gather all of these great minds in conversation. Collaborating with the Garrison School has been a perfect fit since we’re both interested in education and sharing information on a subject that many in the community have questions about.”

The program will take place at the Garrison Union Free School and is free and open to the public. To RSVP, call the library at 845-424-3020.
