Forest Carbon Cycling: Insights Gained from Radiocarbon Measurements

    In studying Earth’s carbon cycle—the exchange of carbon between the planet’s land, atmosphere, and oceans—scientists are trying to understand the role played by huge tropical rainforests such as the Amazon River basin. In particular, they want to determine how long an ecosystem stores atmospheric carbon dioxide in its plants, soils, and rivers. Karis McFarlane is an environmental scientist who has been using radiocarbons to study and better understand this cycle since 1999. She will discuss the ways radiocarbon is used to study carbon cycling in ecosystems and why it's unique and important for climate change. She will focus on the importance of understanding how much and for how long carbon is sequestered in soil and the role it plays in the carbon cycle. This session is a must for all environmental science educators.

Evening Event: A Science Media Festival - Film, Social Media and the Green Ninja

    This event is included with your registration, but you must request a ticket if you plan to attend. 
    How does Silicon Valley work to inspire the next generation of learners to care about science and our planet?  The evening will showcase a selected number of short films and social media tools that focus on communicating science in innovative ways. A panel of film writers and science educators will critique each media piece and offer thoughts on how to effectively use film and social media in the classroom.  The evening finishes with the Green Ninja - a climate-action superhero created by faculty and students at San Jose State to engage young people in topics related to our changing climate.

FC04: Living Wetlands: Environmental Education at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge

    Take a trip to Alviso to visit the Environmental Education Center of theDon Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, the first urban National Wildlife Refuge established in the United States. The refuge is dedicated to preserving and enhancing wildlife habitat, protecting migratory birds, protecting threatened and endangered species, and providing opportunities for wildlife-oriented recreation and nature study for the surrounding communities. The Environmental Education Center at the southern end of San Francisco Bay is surrounded by uplands, marshes, salt ponds, and a freshwater tidal slough. Trails and a new boardwalk through the seasonal wetland habitat makes it easy to see and explore the natural wonders of the South Bay. During the field trip activities, you will explore the topics of water use, wetlands,and habitat preservation through three in-depth activities. A key focus for the Living Wetlands program is to demonstrate the relationship between our personal habits and their effects on local habitats and overall watershed health. All activities are correlated to fit California content standards.
