Tell Us What You Think! Climate Adaptation Needs Assessment

You can help by answering these seven questions, or by attending one of the listening sessions!

Forest managers need scientifically credible, relevant, and timely information on climate change, its effects on ecosystems, and potential management options in order to effectively respond to climate change. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and Forest Stewards Guild are seeking input on key areas of uncertainty where managers have questions so that we can help promote science to address managers' needs.
