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.
Although Maine’s forest is relatively unique, these webinar topics are open discussions aimed at an audience in or outside of Maine. We believe these issues and challenges that need addressing are similar to other regions. Better understanding and articulating commonality as well as differences will be important for testing effective solutions, particularly when drafting potential policies.
