Northern California Climate Change Vulnerability & Adaptation Workshop

October 3-4, 2017 • Upper Lake, CA • Bachelor Valley Grange
This climate change vulnerability assessment and adaptation planning workshop is one piece of a larger project entitled the Northern California Climate Adaptation Project, a collaborative effort between EcoAdapt, the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region, and the Bureau of Land Management - California. The purpose of this project is to conduct a vulnerability assessment and develop climate-smart adaptation strategies for focal resources (habitats, species, species groups) of northwestern California, with a specific focus on the Six Rivers, Klamath, Shasta-Trinity, and Mendocino National Forests and Arcata, Redding, and portions of the Ukiah BLM field office areas.
The goals of this workshop are to: (1) assess the vulnerability of a suite of focal resources (chosen at the previous Focal Resources Workshop) to climate change; (2) develop adaptation strategies and actions to reduce vulnerabilities and/or increase resilience of focal resources; and (3) provide vulnerability and adaptation training, resources, support, and tools to participants.
