Desert landscape with text "The heat is on"

Join the Earth to Sky Interagency Partnership and partner Joshua Tree National Park for a two-day, in-person climate change communication workshop prior to the National Association for Interpretation 2021 Annual Conference in Palm Springs, CA!

Course Details

One day will be spent at Joshua Tree NP, exploring the science and interpretation of global climate change through the lens of desert ecosystems. The following day at the NAI conference venue, dialogues on relevance and ACE techniques in climate change interpretation will draw on the experiences of all participants. Abundant scientific resources, including NASA data and media products, will be provided throughout. During dedicated project time, participants will develop the seed of their own climate interpretation program or product, and we’ll share these with one another at the conclusion of the workshop. Earth to Sky course participants leave energized and connected to a larger community of interpreters, educators, and scientists dedicated to supporting each other in excellent climate change communication.

  • Dates: November 29–30, 2021
  • Cost: $175 add-on to the conference registration fee.
