This webinar will highlight nature-based initiatives underway in the Hudson Valley to address climate change locally including 1) agricultural practices that can help keep carbon in the ground while revitalizing farm soils and 2) steps that communities can take to address flooding due to increasingly intense rain events and storm surges along the Hudson River. These initiatives are both particularly pertinent to the Hudson Valley, with its valuable agricultural resources and the many communities that can expect to experience increased flooding in the future.

Speakers Include:
• Lyndsey Cooper, Climate Outreach Specialist, NYS DEC Hudson River Estuary Program and the Cornell University Water Resources Institute, will describe climate adaptation and resilience programs in Hudson Valley riverfront communities that further New York State’s ambitious climate goals, including a case study of local community climate-adaptive design conceived in partnership with Cornell University’s Department of Landscape Architecture.
• Heather Eckardt, Manager, Scenic Hudson’s Northeast Carbon Alliance Project, will present an overview of the carbon cycle and will discuss how regenerative agriculture can help mitigate climate change while improving agricultural soils.
• Aaron Ristow, Director, American Farmland Trust’s Genesee River Demonstration Farm Network and NYS Rented Lands Conservation Incentives Program, will share examples of regenerative agriculture underway in our region.
