Join us for our 40th anniversary of the Spring Wildflower Symposium from the comfort of your home. We may be unable to meet in person, but we’ve lined up an amazing program for you. You can even attend in your pajamas, barefoot, and with a glass of wine. From armchair hikes to programs with leading experts, there is truly something for everyone. With your registration: • You gain access to Symposium programs for 30 days so you can attend when it’s convenient for you. You can also attend over and over; no more trying to decide which activity to go to and which one to miss. • You can attend our From Our Woods to Your Woods Live Roundtable with Executive Director Doug Coleman. • You are entered into three raffles. This online event benefits The Nature Foundation’s work within the Nelson County Public Schools. They have asked us for virtual programming and this allows us to answer that need. Sign up to learn about the great outdoors from the comfort of your indoors and show your support for a fabulous program.

Location: The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen 3421 Wintergreen Drive Roseland, VA. | Start: 10/2/2020 12:00:00 AM End:

Is COVID-19 a “green” virus? by Miquel Gonzalez-Meler, Professor, University of Illinois at Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory Science ECUSA & Cervantes is a program for the promotion of scientific and technological culture, organized by the Cervantes Institute and ECUSA (Spanish Scientists in the U.S.), and composed of a series of monthly meetings that deal with current topics and of high scientific or technological interest presented in a didactic and affordable way for the general public, and with the vocation of bringing to society the latest advances and developments in science. ECUSA is an association formed and directed by Spanish scientists and professionals of science and technology who mostly carry out their professional work in the US, and who dedicate their time voluntarily to bring science closer to society. It is an open, democratic, plural, participatory and independent association in which all kinds of ideologies and opinions coexist and are respected, and whose nature is 100% apolitical and apartidist ECUSA, like other similar associations of scientists abroad, arises exclusively in response to the needs of the large Spanish scientific community residing in the USA.  Organized in collaboration with Science ECUSA https://www.ecusa.es/, and with the support of The Chicago Council on Science and Technology - https://www.c2st.org/events/  Is COVID-19 a "green" virus? The COVID virus pandemic has caused huge decreases in transportation and industrial activities which has resulted in decreases in air pollution levels and greenhouse emissions. Just in April 2020, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions were reduced by 17% globally. Yet, the highest levels of CO2 ever recorded were 417.1 parts per million in May 2020. This is because of past winter emissions and the fact that carbon dioxide can stay in the atmosphere for many decades. Lower transportation use has reduced car emissions of pollutants that contribute to ozone gas formation, particularly during heatwaves. Ozone is a hazardous gas that mostly affects people with respiratory conditions, coinciding with the high-risk population to COVID-19. Besides changes in human behaviors, governments have taken action that can help or hurt the environment. Many governments have relaxed environmental regulations, have weakened climate policies, are fostering development in forested areas like the Amazon, or have postponed the Climate Paris agreement. Single-use plastic has skyrocketed during the pandemic due to the use of masks and protective equipment. Also, more people are thinking of relocating to less densely populated areas in response to the pandemic which will increase traffic, energy use, or the demand for food and services. At the same time, people are reconsidering lifestyles and have decreased consumerism, which should reduce our environmental footprint and they may have renewed faith in science and expertise. PRESENTER/PANELIST Miquel Gonzalez-Meler received his PhD in 1995 from the University of Barcelona and The Smithsonian Institution for his work on the effects of climate change on coastal marshes in the Chesapeake Bay. He continued his work at Duke University in North Carolina, where he studied the effects of climate change in natural ecosystems exposed to atmospheric conditions expected by 2050. He joins the faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in the year 2000. At UIC, he has continued to investigate the effects of environmental change in managed and natural ecosystems and how ecosystems can help mitigate environmental change. His work expands from the tropics to the Arctic and has published more than 100 articles and raised over $15 Million USD in research funds. He has also served as consultant for the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Franklin Institute and other national and international organizations.
