What You Will Learn:
Uncertainty abounds when it comes to predicting how and how much the climate will change, and how it will affect forest health. Fortunately, models and tools are available to guide managers' activities to promote healthy forests and make forests more resilient to the coming changes. By participating in this webinar you will learn about these tools and current climatic patterns. You will also hear about the upcoming National Workshop on Climate and Forests where you can explore these tools and models in more depth. The workshop will be held in Flagstaff, Arizona, from May 16 to 18.
Participant's orientation starts at 10:50 am (Central) and 11:50 (Eastern)
