Wayne National Forest

Our interactions and activities in the Framework: 

The Wayne National Forest is a key partner in the Central Appalachians Climate Change Response Framework. The Forest is currently contributing to the forest ecosystem vulnerability assessment, which provide information on forests' vulnerability to climate change. 

Our broader climate change activities and perspectives: 

The Wayne National Forest has developed a proposed strategy for implementing the Forest Service’s National Climate Change Scorecard.  Our strategy uses the scorecard as a framework to organize relevant parts of our program of work and to link our Forest Management Plan to appropriate national frameworks.  For example, this approach would allow us to be especially responsive in the area of broad scale assessments, which are an expected part of our forest monitoring program under the pending national planning rule, and to do so in an especially efficient way.
