This is the second webinar in our Spring Finger Lakes Forecast Webinar Series which focuses on how climate change will impact life in the Finger Lakes region and what people can do for themselves and their communities to prepare. The first webinar in the series was held on April 27th and focused on climate disruption and food security. It included a screening of Our Farmers in Flux, Adapting to Climate Change, a short documentary by Shira Evergreen and Uplifted Ithaca, and a panel discussion with local organic farmers.
