Alaska Garden Helper: Explore local growing conditions under a changing climate

January 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am AKST

Speaker: Nancy Fresco, Network Coordinator, SNAP & Associate Director, CIFAR

How is climate change affecting agriculture in Alaska? What might growing seasons look like in the near and distant future, in communities from Utqiagvik to Kodiak, from Gambell to Ketchikan? How cold will “cold” be, in the future? Should you plant tomatoes? Peonies? Apple trees? What do these changes suggest about natural vegetation and ecosystems? A new set of online tools created by the Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning, with funding from the USDA and the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center, allows you to explore these questions and more.
