Draft workshop agenda

Full workshop information

Summary: As our climate shifts, land trusts and conservation organizations stewarding Maine forests are focusing on ways to successfully respond to those changes. To help inform these efforts, the Forest Stewards Guild along with NIACS and the USDA Northern Forests Climate Hub are co-hosting two workshops for land trusts and conservation professionals in Maine. During the two-day workshops, teams of participants will use the Adaptation Workbook to incorporate climate change considerations into their stewardship planning and identify actions for adaptation in their own real-world forest management/stewardship projects. Workshops will also explore the intersection of climate change adaptation and Tribal needs in Maine forests and ways land trusts and conservation landowners can support the Tribes of Maine.
