Conserving Resilience: Puerto Rico and the Changing Climate

March 26 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

featuring Javier Arce-Nazario, Associate Professor of Geography

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017, but this was not the first time the US citizens who live on the Island have had to contend with natural disaster.
