Alamance County Center Southern Foresters' Climate Observations: State Comparisons and Spatial Trends Thu Mar 19, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension http://forestrywebinars.net
— 2 weeks away

What will you learn?
Climate change beliefs and concerns are well documented for the American public, but fewer studies focus on the perceptions and adaptation needs of key groups involved in management of natural resources. We surveyed professional foresters in the southern United States to identify how frequently they observe sixteen climate-related variables that affect pine plantations and forests to evaluate how climate change responses vary across the South. We found that southern foresters observed an overall change in climate, longer dry periods or drought conditions, greater frequency and/or severity of invasive plant infestations, warmer winters, and hotter summers with the highest frequency. Other examples of climatic change (e.g., greater frequency and/or severity of fires) was observed frequently only in select states. A spatial analysis of foresters’ responses provided evidence that observations of climatic change are generally observed with higher frequency by foresters from Oklahoma, Florida, and Kentucky. These findings can inform Extension programming and facilitate development of materials tailored to address climatic changes that foresters report observing for each state.

Presenter: Dr. Mark Megalos, Extension Associate Professor, NC State University

Alamance County Center Invasive Plant Best Management Practices Webinar Tue Mar 24, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension http://www.sustainableforestswebinars.net/
— 3 weeks away

What will you learn?
BMPs help you identify effective and realistic practices that can be integrated into any behavior. Whether you’re a gardener, a landowner, a forester to a logger; the movement of invasive species is always a concern. A BMP can be as simple as cleaning your shoes or as complex as pressure washing your bulldozer. Regardless of your practice, the goal is always to minimize the spread of invasive species. Learn how to create best management practices (BMPs) that help identify and minimize the spread of invasive species.
