Mt. Tam Science Summit
Mt. Tam is arguably the poster child of Marin County. Come learn about the condition of Mt. Tam’s plants, animals, and natural processes at this weekend’s science summit. See where the critical data gaps lie and what might be done to fill them and find out what you can do to help this place flourish and thrive well into the future. Both days will cover a range of topics— from individual focal species that were selected as indicators of Mt. Tam’s ecological health, all the way up to entire ecological communities and some of the bigger issues facing the mountain like climate change and invasive species. Both days are also open to anyone who wants to come. Friday will be focused on engaging natural resource managers and the scientific community, but it is open to members of the public as well. Saturday reaches out to conservation and recreation groups, teachers, and other interested community members with short, focused "lightning” talks, and an interactive panel discussion about the essential role the public plays in caring for Mt. Tam.
