This month, on Conservation Starters, we're joined by Adam Petersen who is one of Thurston Conservation District's Senior Natural Resource Specialists. Adam's background in GIS and crop science, coupled with his personal interest in climate change and emergency preparedness, makes him the perfect guest to discuss the local impacts of climate change and how our community can best prepare. During the episode, we discuss the current and projected increases in wildfire, flooding, drought, and extreme heatwaves due to climate change. Listen in to learn easy steps you and your family can take to be more climate-resilient!
