Bridger Foothills Fire [Video]

An unscheduled Geogramblings vlog and post in reaction to an incident taking place at a location that is very dear to me. The Bridger Foothills Fire ignited on 4th September 2020, and overnight it expanded rapidly from 400 to 7000 acres, consuming the eastern side of the southern end of the Bridger Mountains just outside of Bozeman, Montana. This is not only an opportunity to provide some geography education on the causes, conditions, impacts and responses, but also my way of helping a community I'm connected to (but can't be present in right now) - by helping to spread the word to anyone who may wish to contribute towards fundraisers that will help members of the community get back on their feet.

Water from above, water from below

Being a Bay, you'd think San Francisco was worried about sea-level rise. But what's coming up from under their feet is just as alarming and it's the poorest who will suffer worst.

STEMming the tide of monotonous professional development

Spending the day with the @exploratorium 's Teacher Institute for their #STEM #NGSS conference was the proper way for teachers to enjoy their job on a Saturday! Featuring: @OfficialNGSS, @CAS_Arachnology, @aashuste, #CAngss

Language, culture, land: Entwined in the soul

A low-key, simple event 'spoke' powerfully to my soul. Language, culture and land.

Weather can’t keep the climate at Bay…

San Franciscans can easily challenge the British when it comes to talking about the weather. Why is it so 'damn cold' here in the summer!?

“Open your eyes and then, open your eyes again”

The @exploratorium's Observatory has that 'hidden treasure' feel about it, but each time you visit and open you eyes, the more wondrous it becomes.

The simplest things

My first week at the Exploratorium, and again I find myself having the pleasure of seeing young people in action. Featuring: @exploratorium
