EVENT ALERT: Media Release
Members and Supporters, please plan on attending this timely and informative event. Remember to bring a friend and we will see you at the Library.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
“Fever in the Leaves: Climate Change, Plants, and People” is the title of the discussion. Drew Kerkhoff, Associate Professor in the Departments of Biology, Mathematics and Statistics at Kenyon College will lead at the second in a series of Forums sponsored by the Knox County Democratic Women. The event will be held at the Mount Vernon Public Library in the lower level meeting room on Tuesday June 4 at 7 pm.
Kerkhoff, a quantitative ecologist, uses mathematical models, experiments, and data analysis to understand interactions between living things and their environment. He has a special interest in the ecological importance of plants, especially trees, from the evolution of insects that feed on leaves to the biodiversity of forests and their effect on the global carbon cycle.
As always, these Forums focus on topics of vital interest to the citizens of Knox County. The general public is encouraged to attend this conversation on the impact of
climate change at the local, state, and national level.
