Two professors from Rollins College are on a mission to document changes to our most cherished landscapes – America’s national parks. “Visible Climate” is a result of that mission, combining elements of science and art through an ongoing collaboration between Lee Lines, a geographer, and Rachel Simmons, an artist, colleagues at Rollins College who have been creating environmentally–themed visual art since 2010.
Join Lines as he leads you through a thought-provoking conversation on the constellation of ecological changes across the North American continent, sharing examples of his team’s research, including visually stunning photos.
In his leading research and in-person visual commentary, Lines will discuss how Environmental Wellbeing can impact many aspects of our overall health and wellbeing, and how our planet’s health is intricately tied to our own. Discover why it’s important to pay close attention to conditions in places across the entire nation!
This program is presented by Lee Lines and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
