JULY 23: PREPARING FOR CLIMATE CHANGE IN OHIO’S FORESTS & FARMLANDS

As our climate shifts, stewards of natural lands are beginning to focus their experience and creativity on ways to successfully respond to those changes. This workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Provide information on the current and anticipated effects of climate change on Ohio agricultural and forest lands
  • Describe resources and tools that can be used to integrate climate change into management
  • Outline adaptation concepts and strategies in the context of sustainable land management
  • Identify actions that enhance the ability of natural lands and other ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions
  • Highlight real-world examples of adaptation projects, and engage participants in a variety of interactive activities to identify climate change issues and potential adaptation actions.

This workshop is designed for natural resource professionals and landowners to gain new insights on climate change and effects on forest ecosystems and working farmlands.

JULY 24: FOREST ADAPTATION PLANNING AND PRACTICES WORKSHOP

Natural resource managers will incorporate climate change considerations and identify actions for adaptation into their own real-world farm or forest management projects. Staff from the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science will facilitate the training and provide post-training follow-up and assistance.

Adaptation Planning and Practices is an active, hands-on training, to assist planners and managers of forests, farms, and natural areas in incorporating climate change considerations and identifying actions for adaptation into their own real-world projects. This training is available for a limited number of participants who have a specific project in mind. Through this training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe regional and local effects of climate change on urban forests and ecosystems
  • Understand adaptation concepts and principles in the context of sustainable urban forest management
  • Use Forest Adaptation Resources or Adaptation Resources for Agriculture in real-world management projects to:
  • Identify challenges and opportunities for management
  • Develop actionable steps to adapt forests, farms, or natural lands to changing conditions
  • Create their own climate-informed management plan

For those registering for both days of the workshop, we ask that participants develop a project idea and gain familiarity with key resources prior to the training, which helps make the best use of time at the in-person training.

Examples of projects that may be a good fit:

  • Incorporating climate change considerations into long-range and annual farm operations planning and decision-making
  • Incorporating adaptation responses into revision or development of farm or project plans
  • Updating or developing a master plan or other planning effort for a municipality, park, or natural area
  • A restoration project in a natural area
  • Revising a stewardship plan for a woodlot or forest parcel
  • Examples of other projects can be found here.
