The Climate Smart Land Network (CSLN) provides forest landowners and managers with direct access to the forest and climate experts at Manomet, and the opportunity to benefit from other forest landowners in the Network. The CSLN is a 21st-century “climate services” program designed to make climate change science accessible, understandable, and actionable.
The Climate Smart Land Network is growing rapidly and currently includes 18.2 million acres across North America.
