Climate Learning Network Webinar

Climate Learning Network Webinar

I had the pleasure of giving a webinar on Oct 15, Stories from the Field, for the Climate Learning Network, a new educational project supported by the Northeast and Southeast USDA Climate Hubs and being managed by the cooperative extension service.  The Climate Learning Network is designed to educate technical advisers working with farmers and forest owners about climate change science, climate vulnerability and risk, and effective mitigation and adaptation options for U.S. farms and forests.  Stories from the Field introduced the concept of climate risk and shared some of the successful adaptation stories of the farmers featured in Resilient Agriculture.
