The Governor's Council on Climate Change (GC3) was renewed in late 2019 by Governor Lamont's Executive Order #3 which established new working groups on Working & Natural Lands (Forests, Agriculture/Soils, Rivers, and Wetlands), Equity and Environmental Justice, and more.
The Forests Sub-Group released its Updated Draft Report on September 10, 2020 for Public Comment after receiving feedback from other GC3 sub-groups and working groups. The official 30-day Public Comment period runs from September 22nd - October 21st.
This Report is the culmination of 8 months of significant input from members of the Sub-Group, other forest experts, and members of the public.
If you have questions or comments about this report, please email CFPA's Executive Director, Eric Hammerling, who chaired the Forests Sub-Group.
