Esperanza Stancioff, associate professor at University of Maine Cooperative Extension, will speak at the Maine Coastal Islands NWR Visitor Center, 9 Water St., Rockland.

Stancioff’s discussion will focus on the current research about how Earth's climate is changing, in what ways it might change in the future, and some projects going on to adapt to these changes. Coastal and marine areas of concern will be highlighted. She also will introduce participants to a citizen science program that she co-developed and now co-coordinates, Signs of the Seasons: A New England Phenology Program. Citizen scientists can provide much-needed data related to climate change.
