Green-up in the Alaska Boreal Forest

April 25 @ 11:00 am to 12:00 pm AKDT

Speakers: Rick Thoman (Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy) and Jan Dawe (OneTree)

Green-up, that time when leaves burst forth from Alaska’s deciduous trees, has important implications for the seasonal ecology, society and even meteorology in the state. The unique multi-decadal record of green-up dates in Fairbanks has been used to develop a technique for forecasting green-up and related events in the Interior and more broadly in the boreal forest regions in Alaska. This webinar will be the fourth annual review of the green-up forecasting tools and will provide a look-ahead for green-up for Spring 2023. One Tree will demonstrate citizen science-outreach tools for birch tappers and others.

Where to pick up your tapping kit:

UAF Lolla Tilly Commons, rm 230

On Saturday 4/29/23 from 1-3pm
