Quechee, VT - The Vermont Institute of Natural Science will host an important and captivating talk, with Tom Rogers from VT Fish and Wildlife Department for an evening of colorful photos and captivating stories that aim to answer many questions about a changing climate. Join us to deepen your understanding of how climate change is affecting wildlife and what you can do to help conserve biodiversity in Vermont in the face of these new threats. 
 
From warmer, wet winters to increasingly severe storms, our region’s climate is changing before our eyes and it presents many challenges to Vermont’s native wildlife. How might different species respond to those many challenges and what are conservationists doing to address them?
