What: This the first webinar of our Urban Waters Learning Network series on building community and climate resilience. The effects of climate change on urban areas—like flooding, heat, and drought—are clear to urban waters practitioners around the nation. However, the science of a changing climate can be complex and unclear to the communities that are affected. Join us for this webinar to hear from organizations that are communicating climate change science to the public via different forms of education.
