GARDEN SPEAKER SERIES
ADAPTING TO CLIMATE CHANGE: NO REGRET STRATEGIES
Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 2 p.m.
Stress to organisms comes in many forms and includes competition with invasive species, loss of suitable habitat, pollution, and disease. On top of the challenge to protect and manage ecosystems in a landscape of competing interests comes the reality of global climate change. James Ellis, Natural Areas Coordinator for University of Illinois’ Committee on Natural Areas, will discuss how a changing climate might affect natural ecosystems in Illinois, how changes might impact the ability of people to protect and manage ecosystems, and what you can do with your own land in response to a changing climate. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or email@example.com.
