Giving Tuesday 2018

Giving Tuesday, and its meaning during a time of the year when people tend to collectively focus on gratitude and generosity, is a welcome alternative to the commercialized part of it all. On November 27, 2018, we are invited to reflect on what is most important and contribute to make it stronger. Please join us in the spirit of Giving Tuesday and donate to the Forest Stewards Guild.

Tell Us What You Think! Climate Adaptation Needs Assessment

You can help by answering these seven questions, or by attending one of the listening sessions!

Forest managers need scientifically credible, relevant, and timely information on climate change, its effects on ecosystems, and potential management options in order to effectively respond to climate change. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and Forest Stewards Guild are seeking input on key areas of uncertainty where managers have questions so that we can help promote science to address managers' needs.
