Deep Woods: How Climate Change Impacts Forests & How Forests Slow Climate Change with Mark Berry and Nicholas Fisichelli
March 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This is the third and final program in the 2022 Belfast Garden Club Evening Lecture Series co-sponsored by the All of Belfast Climate Dialogues project that has focused on the affects of the Climate Crisis on our farms, gardens and forests.
Join Dr. Nicholas Fisichelli, President of Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, and Mark Berry, Forest Program Director for The Nature Conservancy in Maine, for a presentation and discussion about the interactions between Maine forests and climate change. The discussion will cover the current and potential impacts of changing climate on our forests, including shifts in species’ distributions and the disturbances that impact forests, factors that help keep forests resilient, potential management responses, and the role of forests in capturing carbon from the atmosphere and storing it in forests, soils, and forest products.
Dr. Nicholas Fisichelli is the President and CEO with Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park. Nick’s work and that of Schoodic is to understand the consequences of environmental change and engage people in the science and solutions.
Mark Berry, the Forest Program Director for The Nature Conservancy in Maine, leads TNC’s work to conserve Maine’s forests.
