Focused on New England forests, this October workshop is provided through a Long Island Sound Study Futures Fund Grant led by the University of Connecticut’s Sea Grant program in collaboration with the Avalonia Land Conservancy and the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS).
The 4-part program will be virtual, except for one field-based component that can focus a 2-hour trip to a local forest to apply the principles that your team will be learning. The total time commitment will be about 6-8 hours over the month of October.
The 4-part program:
- October 1, 2021 (Friday) from 1-2:30 PM EST. VIRTUAL, RECORDED
- October 8, 2021 (Friday) from 1-2:30 EST. A VIRTUAL interactive session
- Approximately 2 hours for Field Work at a time, date and local forest of your team’s choosing. Alternatively, your team can visit the Hoffman Evergreen Preserve in Stonington, CT on Saturday October 16 from noon to 2 PM with a rain date of Sunday October 17.
