Cascadia Climate Action’s series of Climate Science on Tap panel discussions began in 2015 with the aim of providing another tool for the community to better understand and engage in advocacy to address climate change. These popular gatherings are regularly held at breweries and tap houses to bring out climate scientists, engineers and policy experts to share their knowledge and experience with the community. The casual format fosters networking, learning, and action, while also being a great deal of fun!

Everyone knows that the Emerald City has as many trees as people who love them, so why are we razing Seattle’s climate-mitigating native urban forest? Seattle lost over 1,705 trees between January and October of 2023, with more coming down soon. Join us to learn about how native mature trees can help us adapt to and mitigate climate change in our city, why we’re losing trees at such high velocity, and what we can do about it.
