WVEC is passing along this announcement from WV RIvers
West Virginians are seeing the effects of the changing climate and researchers across the state are studying what it means for West Virginia. Over the next few weeks, WV Rivers will be highlighting these scientists and their research through our virtual Climate and Water Lunch & Learn Series. During the live webinars, you’ll learn first-hand from the researchers on the front line of the climate crisis.
