Climate Impacts Maple Breakfast with Senator Maggie Hassan

 

Sustainability is a core value at UNH because it is about creating a healthy, just, prosperous, and verdant world. We have numerous ways in which we engage with the UNH community to inform our work. One way we engage our community is through surveys. Surveys help us to develop benchmarks for various initiatives as well as to inform ongoing and new projects.

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.
