Climate Change Lecture

Polar Bears

The University of Redlands invites the public to hear Kassie Siegel from the Center for Biological Diversity present, “Climate Disruption, Extreme Energy Development, and What We Can Do About it,” at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16 in the Hall of Letters Rm. 100.

Siegel develops and implements campaigns for the reduction of greenhouse gas pollution and the protection of plants and animals threatened by global warming, including the Center’s petition to protect the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act. Prior to working for the Center, she was a natural-history guide leading wilderness trips in Alaska.

“Kassie Siegel has done so much for endangered species, especially the polar bear,” said Environmental Studies Professor Wendy McIntyre. “We are very lucky to have her at the University of Redlands. Her work is so pertinent to today’s most important environmental issues.”

Admission to this event is free.

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
