Full agenda

Preparing for Climate Change
Forest and natural resource managers face the tremendous challenge of developing and implementing management actions that help ecosystems respond to climate change. This session will:

  • Provide information on the current and anticipated effects of climate change on the Adirondack region and its forests
  • Describe resources and tools that can be used to integrate climate change into management
  • Outline adaptation concepts and strategies in the context of sustainable forest management
  • Identify actions that enhance the ability of forests and other ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions
  • Highlight real-world examples of adaptation projects and engage in a variety of interactive activities to identify climate change issues and potential adaptation actions.

Adaptation in the Woods
This session will include an active, hands-on training held outdoors in the afternoon. Attendees will use the adaptation workbook to discuss actions for responding to climate change for a nearby forest.
