Climate Change Student Challenge, Oct.14, 3:00pm at the Thalden Pavilion on Walker St. Across from the Middle School

Dear Colleagues, Friends and Family,

This Fall has been an intense awakening of climate change concern for our Valley.  The smoke is difficult and a clear sign that we need to face the problem of climate change.  To this end, please consider this vision.  We need to keep climate change on the front burner by meeting once a month to talk about what needs to be done politically and individually.  To this end, I invite you to the Ashland Climate Change Youth Challenge event next Sunday that my students and I are putting together.

Come get insightful updates on climate change from Ashland High School Students this Sunday, Oct 14th, from 3 to 4:30 at the Thalden Pavilion next to Science Works.  The students will take on two timely topics:  How to vote for the climate this November and how to manage our forests to reduce smoke.  We will have a special guest speaker too.  Alison Lerch, Ashland Fire-Adapted Communities Coordinator, will take 10 minutes to give us the official lowdown on how to cope with smoke and what you can do to reduce the risk of your home catching on fire.  Come show your support for our young people and their future.  There will be music, interactive activities and valuable handouts.

I hope to see you there.  Thanks for supporting Ashland’s Youth.
