Distinguished Professor of Earth Sciences at Pennsylvania State University Brandywine Laura Guertin has turned to a unique medium to connect new audiences with science stories: quilting. Guertin, whose work is featured in CBMM’s exhibition The Changing Chesapeake, will present an overview of climate science, and highlight examples of actions we can take in addressing these changes — all communicated via quilts.

These unique pieces of science communication share stories of adaptation and resilience from various regions as well as the larger research initiatives currently underway. This event is generously sponsored by the Upper Shore Regional Folklife Center.
