      Winter Wonderland No More? Climate Change & Northeastern Forests

      On December 9th at 7PM EDT, join Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies for a virtual science talk with ecologists Peter Groffman and Lindsey Rustad, in conversation with Cary President Josh Ginsberg. They will discuss how Northeast winters are changing, consequences for forest ecosystems, and adaptations.

      If less shoveling sounds like a reprieve, think again. Northeastern forests, and the resources they provide, need snow to stay healthy. And there is evidence that ice storms – the most destructive form of winter weather – will become more frequent and severe under changing climate conditions.

      Discover why ice storms are on the rise, how they transform ecosystems, and what happens when scientists ‘create’ an ice storm in the forest. Explore how cold winter temperatures thwart invasive forest pests, and how snowpack helps prevent winter tree injury while protecting soil health, water quality, and forest wildlife. And learn how ecosystems and people are adapting to the changes underway.
      This virtual Cary Science Conversation is free and open to the public. There will be ample time for audience Q&A. All are welcome to tune in via Zoom.

      Cost: Free -
