SAVE THE DATE: Climate Change Adaptation in New England Forested Watershed Management
The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS), Massachusetts DCNR and partners are hosting a two-day workshop to consider the impacts of climate change on forested watersheds, with opportunities to learn how others are adapting New England forests to climate change. This workshop is geared to natural resource professionals, who work within and manage water supply forests. For more information on this workshop please contact: Danielle Shannon (dshannon@mtu.edu), and Maria Janowiak (maria.janowiak@usda.gov).
