With extreme weather events, flooding, drought, and habitat fragmentation on the rise, will our trees be able to weather the storm? What will our parks, preserves, and urban landscapes look like in 50 or 100 years? Grab a drink at the bar (one drink is included in price of ticket), and join us for a compelling discussion led by moderator Jerome McDonnell of WBEZ Radio’s Worldview.

Regional experts in climate and tree science will make the case for a green future in the face of mounting challenges.

Get straight talk on climate science, how our local environment is changing, and what that means for our trees. Learn about the Arboretum research and long-range planning that will keep trees around for generations to come.
Get concrete ways you can make a difference, and get your questions answered by our panel of experts.
