Redwoods: New Home in a Changing Climate 

When: Mon., Jan. 6, 7-9 p.m. 2014
Price: free
In the 1962 road-trip memoir Travels With Charley, John Steinbeck wrote that California’s majestic redwoods, “once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always … they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” More than a half-century later, though, there’s a certain sadness to that observation: The redwoods, like much other of the state’s flora and fauna, are being threatened by climate change, and in fact, may not stay with us always. Join Emily Burns, science director for Save the Redwoods League (and UC Berkeley Ph.D), at the Albany Community Center (1249 Marin Ave., Albany) as she discusses the history of the trees and their relationship to larger Northern California ecosystems — as well as what a warmer future holds for them and their foggy climates, how the trees themselves are adapting, and what we can do to ensure that the next generation of Steinbecks gets to experience them.
