INYO350: Earth Day Celebration Talk

Dr. Ben Hatchett to Present Talk on how Climate Change is Affecting Our Eastern Sierra Landscape


The public is invited to come kick off a big Bishop Earth Day weekend by attending a talk and slideshow from an entertaining speaker who knows the Eastern Sierra inside and out.  Dr. Ben Hatchett, of the Desert Research Institute in Reno, has spent countless hours over the past 20 years exploring our mountains on foot, rope and skis, and even more in his research into the dynamics of climate change in arid regions like ours. Ben is an engaging speaker who has received rave reviews for his previous talks in Bishop. His talk, titled “Landscapes of the Eastern Sierra as Climatic Time Machines,” will feature photos and discussion of areas near and dear to our hearts.  

This presentation is sponsored by INYO350, Cerro Coso Community College, and Inyo County Superintendent of Schools.  For information and a schedule of events for Earth Day Weekend visit
