How do I set the breakpoint at 480px for my h1 to a font size of 2.5 em ?

See attached

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}
@media screen and (min-width: 480px){
  h1 {
   font-size: 2.5em;
  }
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {

  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;

  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;

You've set the h1 font-size twice. Once right under the media query at 2.5em and then again at 1.75em here: h1 { font-family: Changa One, sans-serif; font-size: 1.75em; font-weight: normal;

The cascade of the sheet means that the 1.75em is overriding the 2.5em font-size set initially.

Yes! Thank you! It has to go AT THE END. :)
