Climate Action: Let’s Stop Taking Our Forests For Granted
Tue, Mar 23 @ 1-2pm
Covering nearly 21 million acres in Arizona, our forests are a vital resource that impact our state on many levels – as a natural treasure, environmental asset and economic driver. In 2021, our forests are at the brink of catastrophic wildfire. With creative solutions and collaboration between key stakeholders, we can create a sustainable path forward. One of Arizona’s legacies will be the effective stewardship of our forests for future generations.
In this informative webinar, learn why climate action is critical to the health of our forests. All Arizona Forward members and partners can be more informed and better understand the increasingly severe and catastrophic impacts of climate change on Arizona’s forests. Swift and bold action is needed. Hear from experts on efforts underway and how you can help today.
