Tree growth in our community improves water quality, saves energy, lowers summer temperatures, enhances property values and much more.
Matt Fulda, Regional Planner at Metro Council of Governments (COG) will explain what was learned from the Urban Tree Canopy Project, a study done by the University of Vermont that analyzed the benefits of tree canopies in Monroe and five other communities in the MetroCOG region. His presentation will incorporate an interactive "story map" depicting Monroe's tree canopy, breaking it down into close-ups of streets, neighborbhoods and watersheds so you can see and understand the implications of tree patterns where you live.
This program is presented by the Monroe Conservation & Water Resources Commission with the support of the Monroe Land Trust and Tree Conservancy.
Registration is required and begins on August 13th. This presentation will take place in the Ehlers Meeting Room at the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library.
