On glaciers, mountains and some REALLY old plants

The Climate Explorations series, whose collaborators include the Ohio Sea Grant College Program and OSU Extension’s Ohio 4-H Youth Development Program, will host two programs in November:

  • “Glaciers, Mountains and People,” 6-9 p.m., Nov. 12, at the Blacklick Woods Metro Park Beech-Maple Lodge, 6975 E. Livingston Ave., in Reynoldsburg. Featured will be a screening of “Glacial Balance,” a film on glacial melt in the Andes Mountains and its impact on people.
  • “Three Million Year Old Polar Plants and What They Tell Us of Our Climate’s Past,” 7-8:45 p.m., Nov. 19, in the Franklin Park Conservatory, 1777 E. Broad St., in Columbus. The program will look at interactions between Earth’s plant life and climate, with a focus on the Arctic. The event can also be viewed online; visit go.osu.edu/plants.
