Transcript

Gary Lytton: Why not start talking about climate change and sea-level rise with students? They're going to be our future decision-makers. We have high-school students, college students, and adults that attend and participate in our program. So, we're talking about what we call a climate-change filter, in a sense, that we begin to put into play in almost all of our education and outreach programs, so that we're getting general awareness about the issue out there. And that's an action we can take right now, we're already doing that.
