Workshop. Field Day. Networking.

Save the date! The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) is partnering with foresters from New England water supply organizations to host a two-day workshop to consider the impacts of climate change on forested watersheds. This event will provide opportunities to learn about and to discuss how to adapt forested watersheds in New England and New York to climate change. This workshop is geared to natural resource professionals and compliance, who work within, and manage water supply forests.


The agenda is still being developed, stay tuned for more information.

Day 1, November 6 (9-4pm): Presentations from regional experts on the impacts of climate change to forested watersheds. Presentations will cover technical information regarding the interaction of changing water budgets on trees and forest soils, Best Management Practices in a changing climate, Silviculture in an era of change, and Real-world Climate Adaptation stories from foresters in New England who are actively responding to climate change impacts in their management. Lunch and light snacks will be provided.

*Day 2, November 7 (9-3pm): Half day field tour and interactive group activity at 1-2 forests in the area. Lunch will be provided.
