What Outdoor Skating Rinks Teach Us About Climate Change
Start Date: 12/12/2018Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 12/12/2018End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description:

Speaker: Robert McLeman, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies 

Few experiences are more quintessentially Canadian than skating on an outdoor rink on a frosty winter day. But will climate change one day make outdoor skating a thing of the past? Laurier geographer Robert McLeman shares findings from RinkWatch, a citizen science project that collects daily skating conditions from backyard rink makers across North America and uses that data to better understand how our winters are changing.

This event is part of the Laurier Milton Lecture Series, a partnership between the Town of Milton, Laurier and the Milton Public Library. Admission is free, and no registration is required.
