Learn more about climate change and its impact on world food supplies, and about what the future may have in store—or crop production, in particular—as part of an illustrated talk by WSU researcher Chad Kruger, Thursday, July 10, at Brickworks, beginning at 7 p.m.

Kruger, director of WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources, will cover topics ranging from agricultural production practices to cutting-edge research, to critical issues facing agriculture worldwide and closer to home, including climate change; discussion to follow.

The presentation by Kruger is the third in this summer’s series of free talks and lectures on climate change by noted oceanographers, botanists, biologists and meteorologists. The series is sponsored by a coalition of local non-profit agencies and civic groups, which include the Madrona Institute, National Parks Service, San Juan Island Grange No. 966 and Agricultural Resources Committee.

The series next featured speaker is the University of Washington’s Lara Whitely, outreach specialist for Climate Impacts Group and Center for Science in the Earth System, July 24, at the Grange, beginning at 7 p.m.
