FRAMINGHAM — Native Plant Trust recently announced a virtual symposium on the changing climate and its effects on the region’s flora from 1-4 p.m. Oct. 29.  

The program will address methods for building climate resilience and how key players can support this process. The virtual symposium will feature distinguished experts in the fields of ecology, climate adaptation and conservation biology.  

The event will include a keynote address by Dr. Jacquelyn Gill, associate professor of paleoecology and plant ecology at the University of Maine. The symposium also includes a workshop on climate adaptation networks, and a panel highlighting current climate change patterns, their implications for the future of New England’s plant diversity, and the path toward climate resilience. 

“The climate resilience discussion builds on our recent report, Conserving Plant Diversity in New England,” said Courtney Allen, Native Plant Trust’s director of public programs. “The symposium will consider diverse perspectives that offer cutting-edge thinking on applicable conservation strategies and tools. Working together to implement best practices now will greatly impact the future of native plants and the ecosystems they support.”
