This 12-part series tells a story about climate change and its impacts on forest ecosystems and forest dependent wildlife species. We will examine forest ecosystems and their composition and structure under a changing climate, and the influence on wildlife populations and carbon dynamics. We will also share tools and management approaches to help facilitate forest and wildlife climate adaptation at both landscape and stand scales.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) - Forest Ecology Working Group (FEWG), Science Applications and Migratory Birds Programs, and the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) are joining the USDA Forest Service and the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) in sponsoring this webinar series.
Who Should Attend:
Biologists, foresters, land managers and planners, and other natural resource practitioners affiliated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, other Federal, State, Tribal, and local government agencies, and non-government and private organizations, with an interest in the intersection of climate adaptation, forest ecology, and wildlife habitat management.
Dates, Times, and Registration:
• Attendance at all presentations is highly recommended as each month’s topic builds upon the prior webinar.
• The Webinar Series “Climate Adaptation for Forest–Dependent Wildlife” takes place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 1-2 PM ET.
• All presentations will be videotaped and will be available in the NCTC video archive at https://training.fws.gov/topic/online-training/webinars/forest-ecology-and-management.html
