Program Meeting
More and more Americans are accepting the science verifying climate change, yet opinions on the consequences of climate warming and on policies to address it are very diverse. Judy Meuth, a member of the Palouse Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will present information on Americans’ views of climate change and addressing it; Congressional activity on climate change; and policy options to curb change including regulations, cap and trade, taxes, and revenue-neutral fee and dividend. One solution, placing a revenue-neutral fee on carbon that would be returned to Americans via a monthly dividend, is a proposal that has garnered support across the political spectrum. This program will be presented on April 19, 2017 in the Great Room of the 1912 Center, Moscow at 7:00pm: please note the earlier start time! The program is co-sponsored by Palouse Audubon Society and the Palouse Citizens’ Climate Lobby and is free and open to the public.

The Nature Conservancy owns over 30,000 acres of the Zumwalt Prairie, a high-elevation grassland in northeastern Oregon. The preserve is managed to support conservation throughout the prairie, to maintain its incredible wildlife diversity, and to improve its largely intact habitat.  Jeff Fields, project manager of the Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, will give an overview of the prairie and the preserve, discuss the role of the preserve and how it is managed, and describe how the Conservancy works with other landowners to maintain the ecological health of the prairie and the economic viability of working ranches. This program will be presented on May 17, 2017 in the Great Room of the 1912 Center, Moscow at 7:00pm: please note the earlier start time! The program is sponsored by Palouse Audubon Society and is free and open to the public.
