Dr. Cathy Whitlock, the Lead Author of the 2017 Montana Climate Assessment, will present the findings on May 24 at the Billings Public Library at 7pm.
The report is a product of the Montana University System’s Montana Institute on Ecosystems. The assessment describes past and future climate trends that affect three sectors of Montana’s economy: agriculture, water, and forestry.
The program will start at 6:30 with refreshments, and introductions by the three local community action groups who are co-sponsors: the League of Women Voters of Billings, Billings Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and the Better Billings Sustainability Committee of Yellowstone Valley Citizens Council.
This event is free and open to the public.
