In 2012 the USFS adopted a new planning rule that for the first time explicitly requires assessment of relevant climate change impacts. In response to this change, EcoAdapt began to help forest managers assess vulnerabilities of key resources due to climate change and to incorporate climate adaptation into management practices. EcoAdapt and other partners first began working with USFS Region 5 and have recently expanded efforts into forests of Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. This presentation describes the California project and results, and discusses EcoAdapt's upcoming projects in Idaho and Montana and opportunities for collaboration within the Y2Y region.

Lara provided an overview of what happened at the forum and how FWS can continue to get engage in the future.
