The Flathead Beacon reports that on the heels of the state’s first climate assessment, the Montana Institute on Ecosystems, Climate Smart Glacier Country and Flathead Valley Community College are partnering to host a Montana Climate Science Day in Kalispell. The Oct. 16 event will feature presentations from authors of the recently released 2017 Montana Climate Assessment, a two-year effort by Montana State University faculty and students, state and federal agency researchers, nonprofit organizations, resource managers, and citizens from across the state that describes past and future climate trends that affect the water, agriculture and forestry sectors of Montana.

The Montana Climate Science Day is free and open to the public and will take place at Flathead Valley Community College in the Arts and Technology Building from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Following the afternoon event, Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow will speak at 7 p.m. He’ll focus on the 2017 Montana Climate Assessment as a launching point to discuss climate change and its effects on Glacier National Park.
