Climate Week NYC: It’s All Interconnected – Climate Change and NYC’s Plants

Increasing temperatures. Rising sea levels. Extreme flooding and storms. These are just some of the harsh realities that New York City is experiencing due to climate change. But as we witness dramatic scenes from flooded subway platforms or try to stay cool during hotter than average summers, have you ever wondered how climate change is affecting our city’s plants and trees?

New York City’s vegetation and expansive tree canopy offer countless benefits to city residents — including climate change mitigation. But how does the very thing they’re helping to mitigate (climate change) actually affect these unsung natural resources? Join the Natural Areas Conservancy and guest speakers as we dive into this very topic during our September 23 virtual event for Climate Week NYC.
