July Science Seminar: Climate-Ready Woodlands

July 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

About the Event:

As our climate changes, woodland stewards will need to employ climate-adaptation management strategies in order to keep their forests healthy. To meet this need, the University of Minnesota Extension has new lists of recommended tree and plant species that can help forests remain healthy and productive.

In the Midwest Climate Adaptation Science Center’s July Science Seminar, Angela Gupta, a University of Minnesota Extension Professor of Forestry, will share how these lists were developed, the criteria each species meets, and how these lists are being used by woodland stewards in the region.
