Adaptation Implementation Workshop for Southern California Forests

January 20-21, 2016 • Riverside, CA • USFS Pacific Southwest Research Station
The goal of this two-day workshop is to collaboratively integrate vulnerability and adaptation information into current, on-the-ground forest projects. As part of this workshop we will use climate-informed maps and spatial information to evaluate where certain management actions could be implemented to reduce habitat vulnerabilities and/or increase resilience. The workshop will include a review of habitat vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategies, case study examples demonstrating integration of climate vulnerability and adaptation information into project-level planning, and multiple activities designed to integrate habitat vulnerability and adaptation information, including spatial information, into existing forest projects.
