Climate Change

Climate affects us all. In Ulster County we can expect higher temperatures, more intense rain and snow storms, and increased flood risk. This has implications for farming, food systems, public health, infrastructure, tourism – in other words, just about everything.

Here at Cornell Cooperative Extension we are working hard to bring you the latest research and recommendations from Cornell University and other leading institutions. From technical resources, to classes and advice, we have what you need to understand and prepare for an uncertain future.

Our agriculture team is trialing the latest hail-protecting nets for orchards and our environment team is working with municipalities to up-size culverts and bridges too small for future storms. 

Check out our Climate Change Series for all related events.
