Adapting Forested Watersheds to Climate Change Workshop

Antioch University, Keene NH
APRIL 4: 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.
APRIL 5: FOREST-WATER ADAPTATION PLANNING & PRACTICES
The second day of the workshop will focus on the testing and continued development of a set of adaptation strategies and approaches for managing water resources in rural, forested landscapes. During this active, hands-on session, participants will use the Adaptation Workbook to consider climate change impacts and identify adaptation options in real-world management situations. Feedback from Day 2 will directly inform the continued development of the new Forests and Water Strategies and Approaches menu.
