Partners is embarking on a journey to explore the topic of climate change and its impacts in this region and the world as a whole. Throughout the rest of the year, we’ll be publishing a five-part series on climate change, hosting in-person and virtual events, and providing educational resources.

This five part series will roll out Fall of 2020. Check back each month for a new article.

The following quiz covers foundational climate science concepts, statistics about various factors related to climate change, and solutions to addressing climate change. It is the first in a series of quizzes we will release as part of our ongoing education and advocacy campaign about climate change and Grand Staircase.

Throughout this campaign, we’ll be hosting more events where you can learn, engage, and take action.

 

There are no upcoming events scheduled at this time. Please check back later!

We need to understand, to the best of our ability, the world around us in order to make meaningful changes.

The ABCs of Climate Change

The ABCs of Climate Change

With the guidance of scientist and educator Christa Sadler, we’ve created a resource for understanding the fundamentals of climate change. Our climate series will cover the role public lands play in climate change mitigation and adaptation. And the best place to start is to know the basics.

Climate Change and Public Lands

Climate Change and Public Lands

In this installment of our Climate Change series, we’ll explore the current focus on economic drivers, then explain the importance of public land in climate change mitigation and adaptation.

We know from climate science that we can not stop climate change, but we can mitigate impacts and plan for how we will adapt—as a species and a world—to climate change.

For Partners, this means including climate change in all mission-driven programming land management advocacy related to Grand Staircase. It means considering climate change as we complete our strategic goals, plan our conservation activities, and design educational materials.

What can we do differently to mitigate climate change and plan for necessary adaptation? Is there something we can do in the Escalante watershed to ensure our ecosystems survive drought? Is there something we can do through education to help people better understand how protecting nature is one of the best ways for us to ensure that we are able to live in a climate changing world? These are the kinds of questions we will continue to ask. It is essential that we plan as much as possible—and saving Grand Staircase and public lands is an essential component of our planning.

Ultimately, we are planning for our survival, and the survival of our planet.

We hope you will join us.
