Adapting to Climate Change in National Forests

Adapting to Climate Change in National Forests: A workshop for managers aimed to provide the scientific foundation and tools for preparing adaptation strategies on national forests, and to:

  • Communicate scientific knowledge and principles needed for adaptation to climate change.
  • Share recent experiences and approaches for adaptation on national forests and other public lands.
  • Promote science-management partnerships, and motivate adaptation efforts and collaboration among agencies.
  • Solicit feedback on needs and priorities to assist future implementation of adaptation strategies.
