Center Scientists and Staff Reach Out to Community on Earth Day


NCSU_Earth_Day_2015.jpgPeople across the globe marked the 45th Earth Day on April 22 with celebrations and activities aimed at raising awareness of environmental issues. One such activity was North Carolina State University (NCSU)'s Earth Fair event, where the Eastern Threat Center's Erika Mack, Dennis Hallema, Emrys Treasure, Sarah Wiener, and Jennifer Moore Myers took turns staffing a table and engaging with the NCSU community. During the event, they shared printed materials along with online resources and live demonstrations of Center tools, including the Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) and the Water Supply Stress Index (WaSSI). More than 100 students, NCSU staff, and members of the general public stopped by the table to learn about the Center's current research projects as well as the extension and outreach efforts of the Southeast Regional Climate Hub, and several students connected with opportunities for service learning projects and internships. The Earth Fair event was part of NCSU's larger Earth Month programming.
