The Climate Change Coalition of Door County is featuring a program this Wednesday titled “Are These The Last Days for Door County’s 4,000-year-old Boreal Forest?”. Lee Frelich, PH.D, an internationally recognized expert in forest ecology and the environment will make the presentation. Climate Change Coalition of Door County member Dick Smythe shares what Dr. Frelich will focus on Wednesday night.
A boreal forest by definition is a northern forest that includes pine, birch and spruce trees and is prevalent on the lakeside of the peninsula, according to Smythe. The program will begin at 7 pm at Bjorklunden in Baileys Harbor and is free to the public.
