The Effects of Climate Change on Native Plants

  • 01/27/2015
  • 7:30 PM
  • Kensington Library, Kensington, MD


Registration is closed

Speaker: Dr. Sara Via, Departments of Biology and Entomology, University of Maryland

Programs are cancelled only if the library is closed. Libraries may be open even when schools are closed. As of 8 am on Tuesday, the Kensington Library is expected to be open tonight.

Climate change is our new reality. Increasing temperature and the severe weather it spawns have made widespread flooding and drought commonplace, affecting native plants in both wild and cultivated landscapes. Native plants face unique challenges under climate change, and local floras may change significantly in the coming years.

Location: Kensington Library

Directions: From the Washington Beltway (I-495)

Take Exit 33, Connecticut Avenue, north to the third signal after the Beltway. Turn left onto Knowles and go 2 1/2 blocks to the library on the right.

The meeting is open to the public.

Registration is not required.
