Webinar: Establishing a Backyard Ecosystem using Urban Trees (Free)
7:00 – 8:00 pm (EST)
This is an online event
Urban trees are valued for the environmental services they provide, such as energy conservation, carbon sequestration, improving air quality, and storm water mitigation. Urban trees also provide essential habitat for insects, bird, small mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. All of these animal residents add to the ecological function of the urban forest and by welcoming birds, bats, and other insectivores, humans and trees alike benefit from the resulting insect pest control.
Funding for these Urban Forestry Education Workshops is provided by the NYS DEC through their Urban and Community Forestry Education Program.
