Climate Science on Tap: Wildfires, Forests, and Climate Change


This should be a great event and one of interest to anyone who's noticed all the smoke from forest fires that has hung over Seattle the last two summers.  It's down in Ballard, but worth the trip over there for the casual and informative event with four UW PhDs providing their expertise on this issue.  Free. Open to all ages.  Food truck and beer.  Tickets available through Stranger Tickets. RSVP and more information at Facebook.
