(WORKSHOP) Climate Change Adaptation for Wildlife Managers: a hands-on “workbook” process (discount available for North Central Section members of TWS)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Wildlife managers face the growing challenge of helping wildlife populations and ecosystems respond to climate change. This active, hands-on workshop will help participants consider climate change and develop custom-built adaptation actions into their own real-world projects (e.g., Wildlife Management Area plan; population recovery plan). Through this workshop, participants will be able to: describe regional and local effects of climate change on wildlife in the Midwest, understand climate adaptation concepts in the context of terrestrial wildlife management, and develop custom-built actions to enhance the ability of wildlife to adapt to changing conditions.

Intended Audience: This workshop is for professional wildlife managers, including staff members from consulting firms; NGO conservation organizations; and employees of federal, state, tribal, and county agencies. We ask participants to bring their own real-world projects to consider at this workshop. Example projects include: a habitat management plan for a state Wildlife Management Area, a population plan for a sensitive or harvested species, or a landscape-scale wildlife management plan among several agencies. We encourage small teams of 2-5 people to work together at the workshop, but individuals working on their own are also welcome.

Presenters: Olivia LeDee, Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center; Chris Hoving, Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources; and Stephen Handler, US Forest Service and Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science

Fee: $60 (discount available for North Central Section members of TWS; fee is $10) To receive discount, use code: TWS NCS Member Rate W2
