Climate-Smart Forestry Across CT’s Urban to Rural Landscape Gradient
What is climate smart forestry? Why is it needed and how does it benefit us? Andrea will strive to answer these questions, drawing from examples across Connecticut’s urban to rural forested landscape. This talk will also feature funding opportunities for private and municipal landowners to develop climate smart forestry management plans and implement climate smart practices.
