Maine Forest Climate Change Webinar Series
Science and Practice: Addressing Forest Climate Change in Maine
An Interactive Webinar Series for Stakeholders and the Interested Public
12-1pm First Wednesday of each month, Registration Required
The Forest Climate Change Initiative and Forest Stewards Guild invite you to join us each month as a panel of researchers, scientists, and stakeholders tackle issues of climate change and how it is influencing Maine’s forests and forest economy. Topics will include impacts on forest health, recreational use, forest management, biodiversity and pests, as well as the role of carbon and greenhouse gases. The series will run on the first Wednesday of each month, starting in October, from 12-1pm. Each hour-long session will include an informal presentation, followed by panel discussion and Q&A.
