Climate Change in the Hudson Valley

Science & Management Forum
Hosted: October 22, 2011

How is climate change impacting the Hudson Valley? Will warming influence the quality of regional resources, human health, or the local economy? What role can citizens and municipal officials play?

Geared toward municipal officials and concerned citizens, the forum provided insight into how climate change is influencing freshwater resources, agricultural productivity, forest composition, human health, and the economy. A moderated panel discussion focused on local resources.

Co-sponsored by Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and Cornell Cooperative Extension.
