21st Century Naturalist
October 10, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Laurie Giarratani, Director of Education, Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Anthropocene problem-solving presents an urgent need for creative, community-minded, multidisciplinary thinkers and doers. Addressing concerns like climate change, habitat alteration, and biodiversity loss requires understanding of nature, science and technology, and the ability to examine how these systems are interconnected. With funding from the Spencer Foundation, a team of CMNH scientists, Learning Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, and community partners have been working together to find new ways to activate museum resources and build a diverse community of 21st Century Naturalists in the Pittsburgh region.
