Puget Sound is known for iconic scenery and wildlife. Recently, Governor Jay Inslee signed an executive order outlining a strategy for southern resident orca whale and Chinook salmon recovery. But how is climate change impacting these animals? And how is the rest of the food web affected? This Climate Science on Tap will examine how the food web of Puget Sound and the wider Salish Sea will be altered by a changing climate, from microscopic plankton to massive orcas and everything in-between. 

Three scientists will weigh in with fascinating presentations followed by an engaging discussion of the climate change impacts to salmon, whales, and the broader food web, as well as what we might expect in the future. The panelists include:

  • Christopher Krembs, Marine Biologist, with the WA Dept of Ecology
  • Iris Kemp, Ecologist for Long Live the Kings
  • Lynne Barre, National Oceanographic, and Atmospheric Association.

The event will be moderated by P. Sean McDonald with the University of Washington's Program on the Environment and researcher with the School of Aquatic and Marine Science. 

All ages (and dogs) welcome! Enjoy food truck and great beer with friends while enjoying lively conversations! Doors open at 5:30 pm event begins at 6:30 pm.
