Join us at the MLPBS studios on Tuesday, June 4th at 7:30pm for our forum on Climate Change as we bring together members of our community for a discussion on the issues we face, and potential solutions.

Guests will include:
Dr. Eric Leibensperger is a climatologist with SUNY Plattsburgh who authored a study on the increase in temperatures in the Adirondacks over the past century, especially since 1980, and primarily during the winter season; Willie Janeway is the Executive Director of the Adirondack Council; Dr. Lee Ann Sporn is a biology professor from Paul Smith’s College who is an expert on ticks; and Brendan Quirion is the Director of the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program and will discuss how invasive species may benefit from warming temperatures and how it may help them spread further into the Adirondack Park.
