The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting a brown-bag luncheon presentation by Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow. The free presentation, “Responding to Climate Change: An Organizational Perspective,” is Wednesday, August 5, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the park’s community building in West Glacier.
National parks and protected areas throughout the world are being impacted by climate change through extreme weather events, warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, and ocean acidification. Mow said, “Underlying the challenge of how we respond to the new normal are an uncertainty associated with climate change. The organizational challenge for parks like Glacier is how to respond to climate change and build the organizational capacity to adapt to the wide range of conditions that we are experiencing.”
Mow has an extensive history working in northern latitudes and has been involved in climate change response for the National Park Service since 2006. He has been superintendent at Glacier National Park since August, 2013.
