Jim and I will be there to lead the working group considering how the ADK region might think about responding to climate change. We have held 2 full two day workshops on the topic – one at Paul Smiths College during a snowstorm last December, another just this week, June 15 and 16 in Chestertown. Also we held the prototype of a 3-4 hour version of this with a sustainability class at Paul Smiths in May, just before finals, on Sunday, and 50+ students came. We also worked in the Southwest this past winter, with the Dept of Interior Climate Science Center in Tuscon and learned a lot about how the west is handling the impacts of climate change on large scale conservation landscapes. So we will have a lot of information to offer for consideration by people who come to our working group.
Hope to see you on July 15. There are a number of other work group too, don’t read this and think the Forum is only about climate change. Click on the link above and find out about the whole agenda.
