Background:

A two-day workshop entitled 'Adapting to Climate Change in National Forests' took place on April 19-21, 2010 at the Skamania Lodge, Stevenson, WA.

The Objectives were to provide the scientific foundation and tools for preparing adaptation strategies on national
forests.

  • Communicate scientific knowledge and principles needed for adaptation to climate change.
  • Share recent experiences and approaches for adaptation on national forests and other public lands.
  • Promote science-management partnerships, and motivate adaptation efforts and collaboration among agencies.
  • Solicit feedback on needs and priorities to assist future implementation of adaptation strategies.
