Forests and Climate Change Series: Forest and Climate: A Bold Agenda for the Future

April 15—2:00 pm - 3:30 pm (free program)

The protection of Massachusetts forests is vital in: storing carbon to help mitigate and reverse climate change; providing critical habitat for native plants and wildlife; saving historic and sacred sites; and offering opportunities for nature-based tourism. Yet, almost all of our forests are currently open to resource extraction, thereby undermining these values. With more than 30 years of experience working to protect forests, wildlife, and parks and wilderness, Mr. Kellett, Executive director of RESTORE: The North Woods, will retrace steps leading to our current dilemma and suggest possible remedies. Q&A will follow.
