The Lorax Project: Trees as Climate Solutions

How do trees contribute to our lives and protect us from climate change? In the webinar below you can learn about how trees clean the air, cool temperatures, prevent stormwater pollution, provide habitat, and keep us feeling happy (proven scientific fact!).

How can we return the favor and protect them? TCAT's Tree Action Group presented the webinar below to discuss its actions for strengthening our local tree ordinances in connection to the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan.
