SPEAKER: Dr. Kirsten Findell, Research Physical Scientist, Climate Change Variability and Prediction Group, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Dr. Findell will address these important questions:
➤ How does the atmosphere (and CO2 in the atmosphere) regulate the temperature of the earth? What is the evidence that climate has changed?
➤ How are climate models used to study and understand the climate system?
➤ Can climate models explain the observational record if human-based emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are included? What if they are not included?
➤ What can we expect for future climate trends?
Jointly presented by: Haverford Township Parks and Recreation Dept., Haverford Township Haverford Environmental Advisory Committee, Havertown Community Action Group, and Steve Clark, firstname.lastname@example.org (484) 477-7525
Dr. Findell is a graduate of Princeton University, BSE in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and MIT, SM and PhD in Hydroclimatology. She is currently a scientist with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL)—a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) laboratory whose mission is to produce reliable assessments of natural climate variability and change. Dr. Findell has published extensively on her research in the fields of hydro - climatology and land-atmosphere interactions.

Take a walk on the wild side with your family at the Philly Fall Nature Fest at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum! All are welcome to enjoy a fun-filled day of activities, games, crafts, and more at no cost! This FREE event will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Activities include nature crafts, games, guided discovery hikes, and fishing. Participants of all ages may even try their hand at archery and paddling the Darby Creek with L.L. Bean. Throughout the day, exhibitors from across the tri-state area will showcase live music, live animals, and much more!
This is a great opportunity for you to get in the creek, take samples, work with the samplers, and see what is living in Darby Creek. We take samples from five locations on Darby Creek: Bartram Park in Darby, Darby Creek Road in Havertown (downstream from the Haverford Reserve), Skunk Hollow in Radnor, the Brandywine Preserve at Waterloo Mills in Easttown, and the Swedish Cabin in Upper Darby. What a great way to meet others and learn more about Darby Creek!!
We plan to start at 9:00 and hope to finish around 3:00. People come to all sites and people help out at some sites. Anyone with an interest can come when they can.
The insects and bugs we collect provide a snapshot of the health of Darby Creek. This is the ninth year of intense sample collections and identifications. From this long-term sampling, a trend of the stream health at each site has been determined. Each year we compare our findings from the water quality determinations from the previous years. It’s a way of getting the big picture from a lot of very small bugs! But getting into the stream and collecting the bugs is only part of the stream watch program.
The next step will be to identify the bugs pulled from the stream. We then can identify the level of water quality for that section of the creek. The Insect Identification Workshop will be scheduled for this coming fall. Please check the DCVA web-site for more information as we get closer to this time.
Our annual Watershed Wide Cleanup event in 2018 will take place on April 14th. It will take place at approximately 30 sites spread over the entire watershed including Darby Creek, Cobbs Creek, Naylor’s Run, Muckinpatis Creek, Ithan Creek and the various small streams that feed these named creeks. The event will begin at 9:00 AM and continue until 12 noon. As in the past we will be working in 31 municipalities that cover the watershed from East Town, Chester County thru all the sites in Delaware County following the Creek as far South as Norwood Borough at the Morton Morton House. We will also be cleaning the Cobbs Creek from Haverford Township heading South thru Upper Darby, Millbourne and Philadelphia to Eastwick.
