Northern Arizona Climate Change Coalition-Climate Refugees and Arizona's Future

Climate Refugees and Arizona’s Future – Climate Change is already affecting human well-being in almost all parts of the Earth and certainly here in Arizona as well. Smaller climate pressures like rising temperatures have already lead to large numbers of climate migrants and larger climate pressures are now also leading to more and more climate refugees in our region. Current pressures and future projections will be discussed.

“Caring During Difficult Times “
Aug 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

“Caring During Difficult Times ” is a free Senior Connection Speakers Bureau presentation to occur Thursday, August 20 at noon via TeleConnection Streaming on the Senior Connection website.

These past few months have been difficult for seniors and their families. Family caregivers are working harder than ever to care for and protect their loved one. However, all our good efforts and intentions to reduce the spread of the COVID 19 virus has left many seniors lacking in human contact and feeling isolated. Pamela Cregger, Home Care Assistance, will provide helpful hints and tips designed to help you keep your loved one connected and engaged to prevent isolation, loneliness and depression, as well as hints to help caregivers take care of themselves. A handout will be provided.

To watch the presentation, go to www.SeniorConnection.us and click on the link to Speakers Bureau TeleConnection Streaming. For more information contact Debbie Stewart at [email protected] or call (928) 778-3747.

Gala To Go
Aug 29 all-day

14th Annual Gala Weekend

Unprecedented times call for setting new precedents. The 14th Annual Gala will be like none before, a moment to celebrate the creativity and resiliency of the Museum of Northern Arizona and our community.

This year’s Gala will be “To Go,” so you can enjoy it from the comfort and safety of your own home, or you can choose to reserve a time for a VIP visit to the museum. The Gala To Go will have all the fun and excitement of the usual Gala, but with creative new twists, such as performances, special talks by museum experts, and an online auction of fine art and wonderful treats.

Since our “tent” is online this year, instead of outside, there’s no limit to the number of people who can buy tickets and participate in the Gala. Encourage your far-flung friends and family to join you in supporting and celebrating the Museum of Northern Arizona. Winning bidders in the auction will be able to either pick up their items on August 30 or have the items shipped. Tickets are available at several levels.

Full Access tickets include:

  • A VIP tour of the museum on August 29 by reservation.
  • Online access on August 29 to all the talks, tours, and performances taking place at the museum.
  • Preferential bidding opportunities starting a week early, including a “buy now” option.
  • Unique facemasks created by Hopi seamstresses.
  • A certificate for dinner at Josephine’s Modern Bistro in Flagstaff, to be used anytime in the next year.
  • A boxed gourmet dessert to take home and enjoy.
  • Gift set of new notecards, featuring art from the MNA collection.
  • Or you may generously decline the goodie package so that we can put the fullness of your donation to work

Community Conversation #2: Stories from the Pandemic

Thursday, Sept. 3, 10-11:30 am via ZOOM.

Attend this free, virtual Community Conversation. How has the pandemic impacted our people, planet and prosperity? How have businesses and non-profits adapted and what ideas do they have to “build back better”? Each presenter will give a short briefing and then we’ll open it up for your questions.

People—Manzanita Outreach: Discover how the pandemic has affected the well-being of our community, in particular food insecurity.

Planet—Friends of the Verde River: Learn how it’s impacted the environment and organizations working to protect it.

Prosperity—Lodging Council: Hear how local businesses have had to adapt, balancing lives and livelihoods.

The 31st annual Flagstaff Festival of Science

September 18-27

The 31st annual Flagstaff Festival of Science, Sept. 18 – 27, 2020, is going virtual. 

In the face of the COVID-19 global public health crisis, we remain dedicated to connecting and inspiring the residents and visitors of Northern Arizona with the wonders of science and the joy of scientific discovery.  We are also committed to the safety of our community; thus, are closely monitoring the public health situation and following the advice of scientific experts and medical professionals.  Information on the COVID-19 pandemic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can be found at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.

We are actively examining our traditional annual activities and programs to see if and how they can be experienced in online digital, accessible-from-home formats.  We believe we can turn this challenge into an opportunity to bring the Flagstaff Festival of Science into homes and possibly reach more people than ever before.

For more information about the 10 best days of the year and programming updates, check back on this website and please follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/flgscifest.

We are looking forward to celebrating science with you again this year!
