Programming | La Brea Tar Pits and Museum



Climate change is the existential crisis of the 21st century. How it plays out, how we can curb it, and how we adjust to the changes already underway will define our generation. This fall, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, in collaboration with UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability, has designed a new kind of climate series; a four-night conversation between the L.A. community and some of the world's experts on all things climate change.
