"We must bridge the vast gap between what scientists know
and what the public understands."

Climate Educators and Public Outreach Staff:
This year, in the exhibits area, more leading educators and public outreach staff, who specialize in climate change, will come together than have EVER gathered in one place anywhere in California. It will be a very collaborative, mutually supportive environment.
This is a chance to meet with colleagues that you will not want to miss.
