Trees and Climate Change – Act Locally
When: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Where: Interdisciplinary Science Building, Rm 110.

Panelists representing urban forestry, climate and water resources will discuss the current state of Missoula’s urban forest, how it’s affected by a changing climate, and the beneficial relationship between the urban forest and our water resources.
The panel will also focus on Missoula’s drier, hotter, longer summers: what the community is doing and what each of us can do to stem the effects of climate change.
