Together We Can: 2018 Climate Science Alliance Impact Report

Take a moment to reflect on all that we have accomplished together this year in the 2018 Climate Science Alliance Impact Report and get excited for big things on the horizon in 2019! The Climate Science Alliance stands at unique nexus of science, management, and community engagement. Our model has evolved this year from three distinct working groups to what we believe our communities need most - a united network linking powerful projects across the Alliance. Through this new model, strategies and solutions are more easily integrated in all that we do. Together, we can push the climate conversation forward. 2018 Impact Report Climate Science Alliance #AllianceNews #BuildingCapacity #Buildin

Support "The Climate Challenge"

In the Fall of 2019 the Climate Science Alliance will host thirty high school ambassadors and their mentors at the Southwestern Tribal Climate Summit. Students from all different backgrounds will come together to participate in The Climate Challenge. This immersive experience will connect students with scientists, managers, and artists and also challenge them to reflect and analyze the climate impacts in their communities. Together they will investigate climate strategies and solutions and formulate action plans to implement in their sphere of influence. This program serves primarily to inspire and activate youth to come together and make a difference in their community. Donate today and hel

Climate Kids from High Tech Middle-North County Hike 30 Miles on Coast to Crest Trail

Over the past 5 weeks, 8th grade students from High Tech Middle-North County hiked almost 30 miles along the San Dieguito River Watershed. Over the course of several hikes, students used field guides designed by the Climate Science Alliance Education Team to explore "Microclimates on a Macroscale" along the Coast to Crest trail which runs from Julian to the Del Mar beach. Students explored how San Diego wildlife, watersheds, and communities are impacted by climate change. Students assessed regional climate impact data taken from the San Diego Ecosystems Assessment. These young scientists explored climate change impacts to four different species of concern along the watershed and examined how

Alliance Deputy Director Shares on Nexus of Art and Science at 2018 WSN Meeting

Alliance Deputy Director, Alex Warneke, was invited to present at the 2018 Western Society of Naturalists Meeting in Tacoma, Washington on the importance of using art as a vector to communicate and connect the public to science. We have become increasingly aware of the importance of communicating science in a clear and digestible manner. However, this is not limited to spoken or written word. Art and technology are powerful platforms for sharing ideas and connecting with diverse audiences. When thoughtfully integrated with science, they can augment our science communication toolboxes and even advance our research in new, creative directions. As researchers however, how can we effectively fac
