Date & Time

January 20 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us in person for Visible Climate: America’s Changing Landscapes on Thursday, January 20 at 6 PM in Community Conference Room B.

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.

A note regarding COVID-19 safety protocols: At this time, all guests at the Center for Health & Wellbeing are required to wear masks in all indoor spaces, including during our education programs. Presenters may remove their masks in order to be better heard by audience members. Attendees, however, must keep their masks fully in place (covering the nose and mouth) during the entire presentation. In accordance with CHWB guidelines, our programs will also be limited in capacity and rooms set to account for social distancing.
