Part 1 of the Klamath Mountains 10-part Webinar Series
The last glacier in the Klamath Mountains is a symbol of the past, present, and future of the region and will launch our webinar explorations. The glacier’s story weaves together climate change, geology, and water, providing the basis for a journey through this unique corner of Northern California and Southern Oregon roughly the size of Virginia. This webinar series is presented by a collection of the stellar co-authors who have contributed to the forthcoming book, The Klamath Mountains: A Natural History due in hand summer 2021. The book’s two editors will introduce us to the Klamath Mountains and what makes this region one of the most biodiverse places on Earth.
