Lunch & Learn: Trees and Urban Heat Island effects
Join us for a discussion on how trees can help reduce the Urban Heat Island effects. According to the EPA, increasing tree and vegetation cover lowers surface and air temperatures by providing shade and cooling through evapotranspiration. Trees and vegetation can also reduce storm water runoff and protect against erosion.
Michelle Diaz, Trees Atlanta staff, will be introducing Urban Heat Island effect and leading the group discussion.
We host a very casual monthly brown bag lunch at the TreeHouse. Each month, we invite a Trees Atlanta staff or crew member, volunteer, or friend to present an interesting environmental topic for discussion. Brown bag Lunch & Learns are typically on the second Thursday of each month.
