About the Event

Climate change is a global phenomenon  that is negatively impacting ecosystems  around the world. Urban areas, and urban  forests specifically, experience these  negative impacts especially acutely. While  urban forests and trees in cities are  vulnerable to the impacts of climate change  they are also capable of mitigating climate  change and helping to offset its negative  impacts. In this talk, Dr. Danica Doroski, State Urban  Forestry Coordinator for Connecticut will  explain how climate change impacts trees  and forests within the urban matrix, how  these urban trees and forests can in turn  help to offset climate change and discuss  what this means for the management of  Connecticut’s urban forests and beyond. Danica had been working in urban forestry and related fields for the past 10 years as a  horticulturalist at the Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia, PA, Volunteer Coordinator for the New  York Restoration Project in New York City, NY, Outreach Coordinator for the New York City  Department of Parks and Recreation, and most recently as Statue Urban Forestry Coordinator  with Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. She holds a BA from  Bates College in Maine, a MFS from the Yale School of the Environment, and a PhD from the  Yale School of the Environment. Sponsored by the Woodbury Shade Tree & Sidewalk Committee.  Hosted by Woodbury Public Library.
