Evening Program: Exporting Our Clean Energy Impacts

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Trip dates: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 12:00 AM

All centralized energy facilities require infrastructure that have environmental impacts, even renewable sources. Building large-scale wind turbines, hydropower dams, and the associated roads and transmission lines permanently alter the landscape. In particular, renewable energy facilities can impact relatively natural areas far away from the highest energy demand, and which provide important ecological, recreational and scenic values. Come learn about how we can reduce demand for these large scale impacts with locally generated energy, minimize the impact of renewable energy facilities that are constructed, and talk about the steps we can take to make progress on reducing emissions while preserving those outdoor places already threatened by climate change and development.

Doors will open at 7PM so that visitors can view the photographs on dislpay in the AMC Visitor Center and enjoy refreshments. Program begins at 7:30.
