Have you ever been interested in “the decline of play outdoors and the rise of sensory issues?” Or, perhaps, how trees and urban forests really” affect stormwater runoff?” Maybe you have wondered about integrating experts, communities, and online resources for equitably “expanding urban tree canopy,” or climate change & urban environments:” adaptation through diversity.”
If any of these topics are of interest to you, check out the Urban Forest Connections Webinar (UCFW) series. These research based webinars are produced by the USDA Forest Service, and a new topic is presented on the second Wednesday of each month, usually around 10 a.m. Pacific time. At the UFCW, you can sign up for email reminders and view archived webinars on topics relevant to urban forest stewardship.
