Hello All

 

I wanted to share that in August, September, and October, The Nature Conservancy in Maryland and Washington, DC is offering lunch and learn styled virtual events called Digital Dialogues. Feel free to attend if interested! And if you could share these events with your networks, that would be much appreciated as well. Our first one on fire history and ecology is this Thursday! Information on all three is below, all invitations are attached, and here is a tweet for this Thursday’s event.

 

Fire History & Ecology l Thursday, August 20  l  12 – 12:45 p.m. EST

Controlled fire is essential to enhancing a forest’s overall biodiversity and resiliency. In fact, many species of plants and trees have evolved to be fire-adapted, and may not grow or disperse their seeds until after a forest has burned.

 

Join Conservation Ecologist Deborah Landau on Thursday, August 20 to learn how The Nature Conservancy in Maryland and Washington, D.C. is using fire history and science to restore natural areas and enhance forest resiliency across the state of Maryland.

Building Maryland’s Coastal Resilience l Wednesday, September 2 l 12 – 12:45 p.m. EST

Sea levels in the Chesapeake Bay have risen about a foot in the last century—an alarming rate at more than twice the global average. By 2050, models project that we could see an average of two feet of sea-level rise.

 

Join Resilient Coasts Program Director Kelly Leo on Wednesday, September 2 to learn how The Nature Conservancy in Maryland and Washington, D.C. is using mitigation and adaptation to tackle climate change and to strengthen the resiliency of Maryland's Eastern Shore.

The Appalachians & The Amazon l Thursday, October 8 l 12 – 12:45 p.m. EST

The future of the world is intimately linked to the forests of Brazil. And the forests of Allegany and Garrett counties in western Maryland are a critical migratory corridor for hundreds of plants and animals, especially as climate change shifts their ranges north.

 

Join Indigenous Policy Specialist Eduardo Vieira Barnes of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Brazil and Resilient Forests Program Director Donnelle Keech of TNC in Maryland and Washington, D.C. on Thursday, October 8 for a discussion on forest resilience, both in our backyard, and across the globe.
