Description

This 7-session course if free for participants. More information can be found here: https://forestadaptation.org/learn/adaptation-planning-and-practices-online-spring-2020

We are encouraging projects from the Midwest and Northeast US related to:

  • Forests
  • Forest watersheds
  • Urban forests

This unique opportunity provides hands-on training in considering climate change information and identifying adaptation actions for natural resources management professionals working in forests and natural ecosystems. Participants will receive coaching and feedback while using the Adaptation Workbook to develop their own real-world climate adaptation project. The course consists of seven, two-hour web sessions with work time occurring between sessions.

Through this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify locally-important climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Develop specific actions to adapt forests to changing conditions
  • Use the Adaptation Workbook to create their own “climate-informed” projects
  • Better communicate with stakeholders about key climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Access post-training support from NIACS staff during project planning and implementation
