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 Climate Smart Land Network is growing rapidly and currently includes 33.3 million acres across North America.
