Climate Change and Agriculture is part of a lecture series on the regional farm and food system.

No Longer Business as Usual - Dr. Michael Hoffman, Cornell University entomologist and executive director of the Cornell Institute on Climate Change and Agriculture will talk about the extensive evidence of an increasingly erratic climate and how this effects local, national and worldwide agriculture. Dr. Hoffman will discuss ways that farmers and all food consumers can take advantage of changes while also decreasing their contribution to disastrous consequences.

The lecture will be held on the Queensbury campus. 

Check in is at 6:30pm and the program will begin at 7:00pm.
