2018 Family Camp Course: Climate Change and Biodiversity

Instructor: John Roth, M.S.
Date: Saturday, July 7, 2018
Location: Oregon Caves National Monument
Tuition: Free to Family Camp participants; all others $60.

Confused about what’s happening up in the air? Learn how man-made pollution and cyclical weather patterns including the North Pacific High, El Nino, La Nina, and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) have affected our area’s rich biodiversity. Learn how climate change can be predicted based on the paleoclimates inside caves. We will also examine the impact of warming trends on invertebrates such as the grylloblattids. Last time the earth's CO2 increased over 400 ppm, the hot climate apparently killed all surface grylloblattids between here and the Sierras. That is when the two populations started to diverge, producing new species.
