Free Talk “Proforestation: Mitigate Climate Change and Enhances our Wellbeing”

Come to a free educational talk on “Proforestation” on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Greenwich Botanical Center, 130 Bible Street in Cos Cob, CT 06830.

Increased carbon sequestration by forests is required to increase negative emissions and stabilize CO2 levels – an urgent goal to protect biodiversity and avert catastrophic tipping points.

Global restoration of trees has been recently identified as the most powerful tool available to reduce emissions. Protecting forests is also the most effective means for supporting public wellbeing – especially brain health. Are we ready for proforestiation?

The talk is sponsored by the Greenwich Botanical Center, Conservation Commission, Greenwich Tree Conservancy, and Greenwich Land Trust

The speaker is Susan Masino, the Vernon Roosa Professor of Applied Science at Trinity College.
