National Workshop on Climate and Forests

16 - 18 May 2011,

This workshop is designed to increase understanding of adaptation and mitigation options; make planning tools accessible and useful for decision makers, resource managers, and educators; and foster science-management partnerships to generate the best management decisions. An afternoon field trip explores the Four Forests Restoration Initiative and sites of ponderosa pine ecosystem restoration, aspen decline, wildfire, and piñon pine bark beetle mortality. The workshop is sponsored by the US Forest Service, US Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Arizona Cooperative Extension, Society of American Foresters, Association of Natural Resource Extension Professionals, the University of Arizona, and Northern Arizona University.
