F02R annual meeting and Climate Change program

The 2014 Annual Meeting of Friends of 2 Rivers will be on Tuesday, March 11, 7PM at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 8985 HWY 200, Bonner.

How do you explain climate change to a room full of 7th graders who have a whole lifetime of living on Planet Earth ahead of them? You look at the potential they - and all of us - have for making things better.

The featured presentation for the evening will be a showing of Dr. Steve Running's visit with the Bonner School 7th Grade science students which took place last April. Dr. Running and his colleague, US Forest Service specialist Faith Ann Heinsch, described the climate changes now taking place and their cause. They gave an upbeat look at the multitude of career opportunities for young people that will enable them to play significant roles in the years ahead in reducing man's impact on climate.
