Changing Climate and Connecticut's Forests
Join CFPA and DEEP's new service forester, Andrea Urbano, for a talk on climate change and Connecticut's forests! Participants will learn about the observed effects of climate change in New England, what this means for CT forests, how this may impact the way we care for and enjoy our CT woodlands, and what practitioners are doing to address these changes. This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet Andrea and find out about her work as a newly minted service forester for the state of Connecticut.
