Have you ever wondered what the San Francisco Bay area would look like with rising sea levels, drought, vegetation changes, wildlife migration and other impacts of global warming? How will we and the wildlife we share this beautiful area with adapt and survive?

Climate change has emerged as one of the most pressing challenges facing the world today. Scientists predict that global warming will become a leading cause of species extinction over the next several decades. Addressing these
challenges is vital to many species' future.

Please join us for an inspiring and informational evening with leading scientists to discuss our local threatened wildlife and climate change. Find out what you can do to help save the diversity of life from climate change.
