The Missouri River Bird Observatory hosts The Science Behind Climate Change Seminar. While climate change is a topic that is often in the news these days, it is sometimes difficult to separate science from opinion and understand the complex issues that surround it. Discussions often bounce back and forth between physical scientists, social scientists and politicians with each group seemingly saying something completely different. The goal of this talk, presented by Dr. Michael A. Urban of the University of Missouri, and presented by the Missouri River Bird Observatory, is to cut through the noise and discuss what climate change is and how it is different from global warming, what science knows and how we know it, and how climate change detection, forecasting and assessment relates to public policy and our ability to avoid dangerous impacts across Missouri and the US. 10-11:30 a.m. at the Arrow Rock State Historic Site Visitor Center. This is a free event.

George Caleb Bingham House,
1837 | One of America’s great 19th century artists, Bingham is famous for his portraits and scenes of river life and politics. He built this Federal style house in Arrow Rock and lived here intermittently through the 1840s. Fortunately for us, in an age before photography existed, George Caleb Bingham recorded for us the images of his Missouri.
