Climate Adaptation Workshop

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 (All day) to Thursday, April 13, 2017 (All day)

Have you ever wondered how to address climate change in your conservation practice?  Do you have an existing natural resource management plan or project that needs to address climate change?  Would you like hands-on training for applying climate-smart principles to your plan or project?  We have the workshop for you!

Don’t miss this opportunity to be involved in the Climate Adaptation Workshop (ALC3914) class hosted by the North Central Climate Science Center,  Mountain Studies Institute and the Colorado National Heritage Program.

The target audience includes conservation practitioners, planners, and natural resource managers working at multiple scales to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of their work in an era of climate change.  Priority will be given to regional participants

This workshop is being hosted by the North Central Climate Science Center, Mountain Studies Institute, and the Colorado National Heritage Program.  This short course provides hands-on training for applying climate-smart principles to real natural resource management plans and projects that are local or regional in scope.  The training and coaching session is based on the guideClimate-Smart Conservation:  Putting Adaptation Principles into Practice.  Teams, consisting of two or more people, will be coached using the climate-smart conservation framework and will develop climate-informed conservation goals and integrate adaption planning into on-going work.   Teams will document their project at the end of the workshop with a short summary.
