Climate Smart Training Anyone?

Hi Everyone,

Every time I turn around there seems to be a new climate change training opportunity for a new climate change adaptation process or technique, only there doesn’t seem to be a new source of funding for new, large, extensive processes that have the potential to corral the entire staff to complete.  When I got the email notifying me of yet a new “Climate Smart Adaptation” training opportunity, I sighed, jotted down a note to self – “review climate smart adaptation” at the…

Could Increasing Climate Variability Usher In “The Age of the Mediocre Forest?”

In 2001, when large numbers of red spruce trees began dying atop Mt. Mitchell in western North Carolina, U.S Forest Service researchers stepped in to investigate.

Confessions of a Conservation Planner

Nothing is as humbling as announcing to a room full of people, “I’m a conservation planner and have asked you to attend this meeting because I have a new planning tool to help you identify and prioritize your actions”.  As I watch eyes start to either glaze or glare, I smile in what even I can acknowledge is a weak attempt to “facilitate collaboration and stakeholder buy-in”.
