Join environmental scientist Karl Ford in a presentation about his hikes on the spectacular Colorado Trail. He first hiked the Trail in 2008. He re-hiked the Trail in 2021 and was dismayed to see 100 miles of dead and dying forest. That trip prompted Karl to write a book not only about the journey, but about recent scientific research done in Colorado on climate change and its effects on our forests, wildlife, and watersheds.
The presentation will also include information about Wild Connection's work, inspired by Karl's research, to identify places to protect to preserve biodiversity as the climate changes.
