How climate change is affecting our region, and what we should do about it
“We’re seeing a trajectory unfold of a longer summer season and increasingly mild winters, with more variable rainfall. As a result, during our recent drought, the landscape became increasingly arid over time. This trend is likely to continue,” said Dr. Lisa Micheli. On the ground, at our 3,200 acre preserve, we monitor ecosystem health by tracking the climate, land, water, and wildlife. Combining stewardship and science is how we face the uncertainty of climate change at Pepperwood. Here’s why that’s important for all of us.
