Wilmot Community Association

Preparing for climate change takes a village

The WCA wishes to thank the Wilmot Democratic Committee and its partners for coordinating the eye-opening program Preparing for Climate Change with Dr. Lisa Doner, associate professor of environmental science and policy at Plymouth State University. 

Doner discussed climate change and its potential impacts nationally and locally. The northeast faces increased risk of floods, wildfire, poor water quality, food scarcity, and economic impacts. But Doner also provided practical, community driven preparations that anticipate the changes. With increased knowledge, communities can work together to prepare for change and develop hazard readiness plans.
