Are you a woodland owner? Get together with other woodland owners and natural resource professionals to discuss the future of Connecticut's forests. Andrea Urbano, a Service Forester with CT DEEP, will discuss what changes we can expect to see in Connecticut’s forests as a result of climate change, and how these changes interact with other threats to our forests. We will also discuss what we can do to help create resilient forests through the upcoming changes. Bring your questions and concerns about your woodland. Resources for further action will be provided, including information on cost-sharing opportunities for land management practices. Time for snacks and networking will round out the evening.
