Conserving a Resilient Future
Andy will describe a vision to conserve a resilient landscape across eastern North America, and closer to home. This resilient landscape will sustain our native plants and animals in a changing climate, and will support our own well-being. Andy will demonstrate the concepts and data supporting this vision, discuss their applications to conservation decisions, and give some examples, including here in Newton.
Andy is Director of Conservation Programs for The Nature Conservancy in Massachusetts, where he defines conservation goals, assesses threats, and implements conservation strategies. He recently led a partnership project with the Massachusetts Natural Heritage program to develop BioMap2, a conservation blueprint for the state of Massachusetts that identifies resilient habitats in the face of a changing climate.
