Natural resource managers will learn how to streamline developing and implementing management actions that help ecosystems respond to climate change. This workshop will:
- Provide information on the current and anticipated effects of climate change on the forested landscapes across New York and New England.
- Outline adaptation concepts and strategies supporting sustainable management of forests, water, and other natural resources.
- Describe resources and tools that can be used to integrate climate change into the management of forests and forest watersheds.
- Identify actions that enhance the ability of forests and other ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions.
Real-world examples of climate adaptation projects that work to meet landowner goals will be featured, and participants will engage in a variety of interactive activities to identify climate change issues and potential adaptation actions.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
Professional foresters and natural resource professionals working for tribal organizations and partners.
We ask participants to select a real‐life land management project relevant to their job to use during the workshop.
A management project could be part of a forest management plan, timber harvest prescription, or other natural resource management project. We encourage small teams of 2-5 people to work together on your project, but individuals working on their own are also welcome. Small teams would include the people most relevant to making decisions about your project, such as planners, specialists, or managers).
