May Webinar: Engaging the community to obtain data on forest health

May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
The Forest Health Watch is designed to engage communities in research and learning about native plant health issues. The pilot project of the program is focused on the dieback of Thuja plicata, and community scientists are needed to accelerate the research. Western Red Cedar is a critical component of native cultures and ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest, but recent reports of widespread dieback have garnered concern about its ability to cope with our changing climates.
Attend this presentation to learn more about the issue, the opportunities to contribute to the research, and the ways your contributions will help accelerate research to find solutions.
