Climate change increases the risk in Piedmont of drought, wildfires, and severe rainfall which may cause flooding. Implementing the right landscaping practices in your home and garden can lessen the effects of these natural disaster events. These practices will also help the environment in other ways, conserving water, increasing biodiversity, and reducing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.

At 6:30 pm, Climate Fellow Justin Szasz will give a brief speech. He will explain how the featured practices, together, can create vibrant and resilient natural landscapes that will prepare Piedmont for climate change’s various effects.

This event is a great way to get involved right away in the fight against climate change and for a vibrant environment and resilient community. We hope to see you there!
