Schoodic Institute Brown Bag Discussion: Maple Trees and Changing Weather… Is Climate Change Affecting the Maple Industry? - Held on March 21 @ 12 - 1pm FREE
Discussion about Climate Change affecting Maple Syrup production.
Weather changes are affecting many agricultural industries. Are forest ecosystems affected by changes in temperature and precipitation trends? Is the maple syrup industry going to change as a result of changing weather? Kathryn Hopkins of the Maine Cooperative Extension Service explores the suspected long-term effects of climate change and the strategies that producers may employ to increase resilience in their production systems. This Brown Bag is free and open to the public. Program begins at 12 noon in Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus in Winter Harbor. No registration required.
