This workshop was designed to help Minnesota DNR employees incorporate climate change into natural resources management. Specifically, participants are provided with training on climate change effects on forest ecosystems and forested watersheds, and also on how to develop customized actions to adapt and prepare for change. The course uses the Adaptation Workbook process to consider how climate change may affect a real‐world land management project, identify challenges and opportunities for management under a changing climate, and develop actions to reduce risk and increase the ability of forests and watersheds to cope with change.
