About the Event
When it rains it pours. Drawing on lessons from her research of atmospheric rivers–rivers in the sky–Dr. Katerina Gonzales will share reflections on the atmospheric and climatic conditions that not only change the water cycle, but change who we become. With an eye towards change and transformation, we will reflect on the journeys that these sky rivers take and what they have to teach us about responding to the climate crisis within ourselves and in community.
