"Trees and Climate Change - Act Locally" - Panel Discussion

  • University of Montana - Interdisciplinary Science Building, Rm 110 32 Campus Drive Missoula, MT, 59812 United States (map)

Panelists representing urban forestry and climate will discuss the current state of Missoula’s urban forest and how it’s affected by a changing climate, and the beneficial relationship between the urban forest and our water resources.

The panel will also focus on Missoula’s drier, hotter, longer summers: what the community is doing and what each of us can do to stem the effects of climate change.

Moderator: Karen Sippy, Executive Director, Trees for Missoula

Panelists: Nick Silverman, Research Scientist, University of Montana

                   Jamie Kirby, MT State Urban & Community Forester, DNRC
