Class: Climate Change and Native Plants
Fri, November 6 @ 10:30 am EST - 12:30 pm EST
Climate change is a multifaceted challenge with numerous—and sometimes unexpected—contributing factors. To create solutions on a personal and manageable scale, we need to turn to the science.
This class will cover a brief history of climate change and address carbon and hydrological cycles, the earth’s heating and cooling systems, and the importance of wise landscape design, construction, and agriculture to mitigate climate change.
We will also discuss the role of native plants in the climate change conversation.
