Climate Change: What to Expect for Local and Northwest Environments
Presented by Nancy Grulke, Director, Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center, U.S. Forest Service, Prineville. Dr. Grulke’s research focuses on the interactive effects of elevated carbon dioxide and ozone on tree carbon and water balance.
Following up on the March program, Nancy Grulke will explain how higher levels of carbon dioxide and ozone from climate change are affecting trees, such as their carbon and water balance. What does this mean for our local and western forests and habitats? What can we do to lower our own carbon impact on climate? Bring the estimate of your personal carbon footprint (a simple process at climatepath.org) and explore COTAP.org for ways to offset your carbon usage for Q&A and discussion after the presentation.
