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.
