Indian Rock/Barnes Nature Center Offers Monthly Lecture Series: This Month, Climate Change

Indian Rock Nature Preserve, 501 Wolcott Road Bristol, CT 06010.

Earth: The only livable planet that we know of is heating up.

Learn about the process behind the heating and what’s causing it.

In this first of two talks, Indian Rock will focus on the deadly trio within our oceans: warming, acidification, and anoxia, and how this trio impacts our oceans.

Indian Rock will also take a look at the differences between natural and human induced heating.

Join Indian Rock for an enlightening lecture series about Climate Change with Troy Schinkel, Instructor of Geological Sciences at Central Connecticut State University and currently part of the Master Naturalist Program at Goodwin Forest, as he walks us through the how what and why of our changing planet.
