How might climate change affect us here in Pennsylvania? Find out during this presentation by Greg Czarnecki, Climate Change and Research Coordinator with Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).

As the climate changes, plants and animals have three options – adapt, move, or die. This is already beginning to happen in many places across the globe, including Pennsylvania. Mr. Czarnecki’s presentation will look at the current and projected impacts of climate change on our native species and forests, and the challenges and opportunities conservationists face in helping to ensure their survival.
