PREPARING FOR CLIMATE CHANGE IN FORESTED WATERSHEDS


Natural resource managers face the tremendous challenge of developing and implementing management actions that help ecosystems respond to climate change. This session will:

* Outline adaptation concepts and strategies in the context of sustainable management of water resources in forested areas.

* Provide information on the current and anticipated effects of climate change on water resources in forested landscapes of the Northeast.

* Describe resources and tools that can be used to integrate climate change into the management of forest water resources.

* Identify actions that enhance the ability of forested watersheds 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.

 

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.

 

Day 2
