Methow Conservancy First Tuesday Program

Tuesday, October 3rd, 7:00 – 8:30pm at the Methow Valley Community Center, Twisp.

Smoke in the Air: A community conversation about air quality and health” 

Breathing air – it should be easy right? This summer we learned it’s a lot more complicated. AQI, WAQA, PM2.5…. yellow, orange, red… there’s a lot to understand, and there are things we can do, especially in the winter, to improve our local air quality. Did you know that we are exposed off and on year-round to unhealthy air? Dr. Raleigh Bowden and Elizabeth Gribble Walker, PhD with the Methow Valley Clean Air Project will clear the air about our local air pollution, its impact on your health, controllable vs. uncontrollable sources, how to find and interpret real-time air quality information, how to protect your health in hazardous air pollution episodes, and how we can protect vulnerable populations and keep our Methow air clean. A presentation will be followed by an audience-driven panel discussion and Q&A with several experts in various air-quality and health fields.

 

The program is free and open to everyone.  The doors open at 6:30pm.  For more information, contact 996-2870 or mary@methowconservancy.org.
