Mass Audubon is teaming up with WCVB Channel 5 chief meteorologist Harvey Leonard, who will discuss “What’s With the Weather?” at The Center for Arts (TCAN) in Natick on Sunday afternoon, March 29.
This event is free and open to the public.
Leonard’s fascinating take on this unprecedented winter—and where our weather patterns might be headed—is sponsored by Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick. And the local connection extends to the speaker, himself a longtime Natick resident. The meteorologist will address the heavy snowfall and deep cold of the past month. But Leonard will also focus on the temperature swings, record high winds, severe drought and rainfalls, and other extreme weather events of the past several years.
He will also be answering questions from the audience. As his loyal audience knows, Leonard, who joined WCVB Channel 5 in 2002, has been a broadcast fixture in the greater Boston area and throughout the region for more almost four decades. “February, 2015 has certainly been one for the record books, and only serves to add to the interest, need and importance of discussing normal climatic variation and climate change,” Leonard said. “I look forward to a lively discussion and to meeting many interesting people.”
Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary Director Elissa Landre said Leonard’s timely subject matter aligns with the mission of Mass Audubon, the respected conservation leader. “In helping to connect people with nature, we support birds and other species whose habitats are being impacted by threats including floods, dangerous heat spells, and beach erosion caused by coastal storms of increasing ferocity and frequency,” Landre said. “So everyone who attends is going to find Harvey’s talk enlightening and educational.”
