Tuesday, March 10, 2020. 8:00AM. Tree Canopy from Big Cities to Small Towns: A Pathway to Climate Resilience Workshop. Sponsored by USDA Northeast Climate Hub. More information here.
The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is collaborating with the USDA Northeast Climate Hub and American Forests, to host the Northeast Climate Adaptation Workshop, entitled Tree Canopy from Big Cities to Small Towns: A Pathway to Climate Resilience. Join us for an exciting day, connecting city managers, educators, master gardeners, master naturalists, arborists, landscape architects, researchers, extension agents, and urban foresters to useful resources to build climate resilience.
The Climate Hub has invested in building sound knowledge exchange among members of the Northeast community and the information sharing has advanced the understanding of potential solutions to climate adaptation strategies in agriculture. This workshop aims to dig a little deeper into shaping the creative thinking around practical tools that can be applied in local communities that encourage climate adaptation through managing tree canopies. The workshops will center around two themes: 1. Using the Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR Framework) and 2. Maximizing the potential for action through effective communication.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
