Rising temperatures are changing the face of our cities and wildlands. Continuing drought and wildfires affect both humans and wildlife. They are migrating to find reliable supplies of water for drinking, cleaning, agriculture, industry, and more.

This quilt symbolizes the diminishing rainfall, as well as the resulting heat and wildfires that cause both conflict and competition for resources around the world. These Canadian geese must travel much farther north to find the temperature, water, and food they need. We must continue to search for ways to protect and conserve this most essential ingredient needed to support all life.
