Rooted in Research Webinar Series: Changing Hydrology, Changing Landscapes

Black ash is a foundational species in forested wetlands across the upper Lake States region, and the loss of black ash due to emerald ash borer affects the hydrology of these wetlands, which are already at risk from climate change impacts like extreme precipitation. Dustin Bronson will present current research solutions to restore floodplain forests and hydrologic functions. Alexander Mehne will discuss this issue in regard to effects on tribal communities and share management examples from the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

On Wednesdays in May, we will be hosting a collaborative Rooted in Research webinar series organized in partnership with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and the USDA Northern Forests and Northeast Climate Hubs. 

Rooted in Research: Changing Hydrology, Changing Landscapes is a four-part webinar mini-series that dives into the latest research and management on issues related to extreme rain and flooding in forests, cities, and agricultural lands. Each webinar will feature research investigating the hydrological shifts brought about by climate change, its impacts on a focal landscape, and management challenges and solutions.

These webinars will consist of presentations followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
