NIACS and the Forest Stewards Guild's webinar series focuses on forests and climate change adaptation. The series brings together scientists and managers to learn about and discuss emerging topics related to the effects of climate change on forest management, with a focus on forests in New England and New York. Each session explores the latest scientific information from someone actively researching the issue, followed by an example of a real-world management project.
