American Public Gardens Association and NOAA Partner to Enhance Climate Change Awareness
NOAA and the American Public Gardens Association launched a broad agreement regarding climate change programming. It links NOAA’s internationally recognized climate services and the Association's public gardens, which receive more than seventy million visitors a year.
American Public Gardens Association members are leaders dedicated to the conservation of and education about the earth’s flora and fauna. Member gardens are uniquely qualified to share science-based, non-partisan information and facilitate outreach to engage visitors in sustainable solutions to climate change.
Public gardens occupy a critical place in the discussion surrounding pollinator health. They perform research related to plant conservation and pollinator protection, join forces with other public or private institutions to promote awareness of the issue, and educate millions of their own visitors on plant conservation and pollinator protection. This all occurs against a backdrop of intentionally designed and managed spaces where the best tools are needed to achieve the highest aesthetic value.
