Description

This 12-part monthly webinar series will explore forest ecosystems and their composition and structure under a changing climate, and the influence on wildlife populations and carbon dynamics.  The series will also share tools and management approaches to help facilitate forest and wildlife climate adaptation at both landscape and stand scales.

Series topics will be applicable to biologists, foresters, land managers and planners, and other natural resource practitioners working in Federal, State, Tribal, and local government agencies, and non-government and private organizations, with an interest in the intersection of climate change adaptation, forest ecology, and wildlife habitat management.

Webinars will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 1:00-2:00pm ET. Each month's presentation topic is intended to build upon the prior webinar in order to tell a cohesive story about climate change impacts on forest ecosystems and forest-depended wildlife and provide adaptation options and lessons learned.  The series begins with a Special Webinar Presentation on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Climate Change Action Program and Nature-Based Solutions for Forest Adaptation to set the stage for the 12-part webinar series story.
