Defeat the Heat at Iowa City Senior Center

2 hours

All Events, General Events

Partake of the results of a study this summer that tracked temperature, time and location of 30 volunteers' vehicles, to determine Iowa City's "heat lands."  Get a "resilience starter kit", learn about trees and native lawns and how they offset heat islands, understand how to care for someone with heat illness, and hear presentations by 100Grannies, CommUnity, and the NOAA. Light refreshments will be provided; bringing your own lunch is encouraged.
