Northern California Adaptation Implementation Workshop

November 15-16, 2021 and November 17-18, 2021 • Virtual Series
This climate change adaptation 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 goal of this workshop is to develop specific implementation plans for high-priority adaptation strategies, focused on specific sites, projects, and/or focal resources. Participants will also review and evaluate adaptation strategies and actions compiled during previous workshops and from outside sources in order to support the identification strategies and actions that should be prioritized for implementation.
Agenda & Speakers
9am–12pm on November 15th and 16th, 2021
9am–12pm on November 17th and 18th, 2021
Workshop Presentation:
Workshop Proceedings:
The Adaptation Implementation Workshop Proceedings summarize the activities and outcomes of the Northern California Adaptation Implementation Workshops held for the Redding and Eureka/Arcata regions in November 2021. The report includes an overview of climate adaptation planning and a description of the workshop activities, then presents adaptation implementation plans created by workshop participants for six priority sites within the northwestern California study area.
