The Effects of Climate Change on our National Parks

Presented by: Mark Mesle and Cassidy Jones

Science & Land


Time: -

Climate change is the greatest threat the national parks have ever faced. Nearly everything we know and love about the parks — their plants and animals, rivers and lakes, glaciers, beaches, historic structures, and more — is already under stress from these changes, which together amount to a state of crisis for our public lands. Parks can help us understand what is at risk if we fail to seriously address the climate crisis. The unique legal protections and cultural significance of parks can also help drive broader climate solutions. 

Join Cassidy Jones and Mark Mesle of the National Parks Conservation Association to examine how climate change is affecting the parks and what it will take protect these places in perpetuity.
