Climate Leader Series: Unpacking California’s 30×30 Goals with Jen Norris
Join us for a talk with Dr. Jennifer Norris, from California Natural Resources Agency, to learn about California’s 30X30 conservation goals.
California has committed to conserve and restore at least 30% of nature—on land and at sea— by 2030, in an effort to preserve the vital functions these natural resources provide to our well-being and avert the rapid loss of species. Nature-based solutions also build climate resilience, reducing risk from extreme climate events, and contributing to the State’s effort to combat climate change.
This 30×30 effort requires multi-stakeholder input to not only identify which priority areas are most at risk due to a variety of pressures—such as sprawl development, pollution, erosion—but also the ones that provide the most crucial benefits to the balance of life, expand the great outdoors to more Californians, and help curb the climate crisis.
On August 18, we host Dr. Jennifer Norris, Deputy Secretary for Biodiversity and Habitat at the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA), for a 30-minute talk about the 30×30 initiative’s monumental potential at the state and regional levels to improve and support biodiversity, climate resilience, and equitable access to open space. Join us to learn more and find out ways you can provide input to this process!
