Is our unusual weather part of a natural cycle, or are we experiencing a global change? Scientists study climate using weather patterns from around the globe over a long period of time to determine warming trends. Understanding our climate helps us prepare our city for a more sustainable future. The Urban Park Rangers will introduce you to important scientific concepts that guide how our world behaves.

Our climate programs explore topics like climate change, global warming and concepts of sustainability. On their weather programs, they will delve deeply into everyday weather events including lightning and thunder, clouds and the water cycle, and hurricanes and extreme storms.
