Bitterroot Climate Action Group
September 16, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Bitterroot Climate Action Group is pleased to resume a series of informational talks on locally relevant issues related to climate change with “Climate change and animal health,” a virtual talk by Scott Bovard, Missoula veterinarian. The presentation, which is co-sponsored by Montana Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate, will be at 7 pm on September 16, 2021, over Zoom. The talk will be free and open to the public, but registration is required, using the link https://bitterrootcag.org/event-registration/ . Scott Bovard is a small animal veterinarian who has also cared for horses, camels, wild mammals (lynx and wolverines), and birds of prey. He is involved in climate change issues, as a member of the Citizens Climate Lobby, so is uniquely poised to address animal health and climate change.
The talk is part of a series of educational presentations sponsored by the Bitterroot Climate Action Group (BCAG), an organization of Bitterroot Valley residents interested in formulating responses to the problem of global warming. As part of this effort, BCAG provided matching funds for the City of Hamilton to purchase an electric vehicle charging station (to be installed at the Bedford Building) and donated ten HEPA filter units to the Burnt Fork Manor, to help vulnerable residents to cope with wildfire smoke. For more information, interested people can visit the web site (bitterrootcag.org), facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/bitterrootcag/), or email the group ([email protected]) to get on the mailing list. The cosponsor, Montana Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate, is an organization of health care professionals who believe that climate change is a health care issue that should be addressed.
