2022 Goldstein Lecture: Science for the Present July 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
On July 26th, join us for a conversation on Science for the Present with National Park Service Director, Charles F. “Chuck” Sams III, as our featured guest.
When it comes to our climate, too often our focus is on what has happened in the past or what might happen in the future; however, communities across the globe are experiencing dramatic changes right now. Here in Acadia, we are dealing with hotter temperatures, rising sea level, and increasing storm frequency and intensity.
During the lecture, Director Sams and a panel of early-career science professionals will discuss some of the most pressing climate challenges in our national parks, and the importance of Indigenous leadership and knowledge as well as conventional science to inform our response to ecological transformation. The panel will be moderated by Andrew Revkin, environmental journalist and Director with the Earth Institute at Columbia University. The Goldstein Lecture serves to convene and inspire on critical topics for parks, people, and the planet. The lecture is named in honor of Alan Goldstein, an accomplished businessman, philanthropist, sailor, and environmental advocate. Schoodic Institute serves as the nation’s largest Research Learning Center and is a nonprofit partner of Acadia National Park. Chairing Schoodic Institute’s Board of Directors from 2006 to 2018, Alan remains an active member of the Board.Please join us in-person at Schoodic Institute or remotely via Zoom.
