Connect and Protect: Building an Enduring Appalachian Climate Corridor
May 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
For nearly a century, the Appalachian Trail has existed as a backbone of conservation in the eastern United States. The footpath traverses a natural network of connected mountains, forests, rivers, and streams that is critical to adapting to a changing climate. Large-landscape scale conservation has come into focus as the future of the Appalachian Landscape to connect and protect this ecological corridor beyond the footpath of the Appalachian Trail.
This webinar will provide three perspectives on scaling up conservation around trails that can provide for unique opportunities and challenges for protected corridors, ecological systems, biodiversity, and human connection to nature.
