Forest Planning and Practices Online Training for New England and New York

Weekly webinar sessions held during January 15 – March 2, 2018


The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science is offering their Forest Adaptation Planning and Practices training as an online, seven-week course for natural resource professionals working in New England and New York. This training is designed to help professionals working for public agencies, conservation organizations, and private landowners enhance the ability of forests to adapt to changing conditions.

This provides hands-on training in considering climate change information and identifying adaptation actions for natural resources management and conservation. Participants will receive coaching and feedback on their own real-world climate adaptation project. The online Adaptation Workbook tool will be featured, with special course features and additional materials. Through this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify locally-important climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Develop specific actions to adapt forests to changing conditions
  • Use the Adaptation Workbook to create their own “climate-informed” projects
  • Better communicate with stakeholders about key climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities
  • Access post-training support from NIACS staff during project planning and implementation
