Natural resource professionals need scientifically credible, relevant, and timely information on climate change, its effects on ecosystems, and potential management options in order to effectively respond to climate change. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and Forest Stewards Guild are seeking input on key areas of uncertainty where managers have questions so that we can help promote science to address managers' needs. 

Contact Amanda Mahaffey or Maria Janowiak with your questions.

Listening sessions

During winter and spring 2019, we conducted a series of in-person listening sessions to explore science needs in greater detail and invited forest managers and other natural resource professionals to join us for the conversation.

Past sessions:

  • Wednesday, May 1: Syracuse, NY (webinar)

  • Thursday, December 6: Orono, ME
