Falmouth, MA 02540
Join Salt Pond Bird Sanctuaries and The 300 Committee for their adult speaker series, all free and open to the public! January’s talk will be led by Max Holmes, Deputy Director and Senior Scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center.
Max Holmes is an earth systems scientist who studies rivers and their watersheds and how climate change and other disturbances are affecting the cycles of water and chemicals in the environment. He has conducted work on rivers around the world, including in Russia, Alaska, the Amazon, and the Congo; these studies have informed how he thinks about rivers on Cape Cod. His talk will highlight the work of the Cape Cod Rivers Observatory (caperivers.org), which Max and colleagues began in 2016.
With ongoing projects in the arctic and in the tropics, Max is committed to engaging students in his research projects and to communicating the results and implications of his research to the public and to policy-makers. Please join us to see how similar, and how different, our rivers on the Cape are from others around the world.
