Climate Impacts Maple Breakfast with Senator Maggie Hassan

 

Sustainability is a core value at UNH because it is about creating a healthy, just, and productive world. We need your input on what sustainability means to you and how UNH is doing. In November 2016, we asked you for your perspective. Below are survey questions and results from this fall.

Student input helps ensure that sustainability is a consistent thread that connects and enhances our learning community. The survey results will also be used to identify opportunities to better include everyone in important efforts here on campus and beyond.

In April 2017, we will submit another survey to students. We look forward to hearing your input.

Maple syrup is a New Hampshire institution, but climate change could have tragic impacts on the future harvest in NH unless we act now! Come celebrate and learn how to protect this home-grown delight at our annual pancake breakfast.

Join local environmental groups and the UNH Sustainability Institute for a Climate Impacts Maple Breakfast. Hear from local maple syrup producers, scientists, and elected officials about the impacts of a changing climate on the NH maple syrup industry. Then, take action with local organizations and enjoy pancakes with real New Hampshire maple syrup.

Panelists included Senator Maggie Hassan, Ray LaRoche of Maple Meadow and LaRoche Farm, Jeff Moore of Windswept Farms and the NH Maple Producers board, Professor Cameron Wake, and Cathy Corkery of NH Sierra Club.

Doors open at 7:30am and the program will start at 8:00am. This event is FREE and open to the public but registration is required.

The Climate Impacts Maple Breakfast is sponsored by Moms Clean Air Force, Environment New Hampshire, Union of Concerned Scientists, League of Conservation Voters, and New Hampshire Sierra Club, in partnership with the UNH Sustainability Institute.
