About This Webinar

Natural lands have an important role to play in responding to climate change; these lands can help both human and ecological communities adapt to future conditions and can help to store and sequester carbon. It can be challenging for land trusts to know where to start and how to focus their efforts to help mitigate climate change. In this webinar, Kelly Watkinson, the Alliance’s Land and Climate program manager, will be joined by climate planning experts Joel Houser, Southeastfield coordinator for the Open Space Institute and Kelly Pohl, associate director of Headwaters Economics, to share resources we believe will be helpful and relevant to land trusts on their journey.   

Here's a look at what we will cover: 

  • How climate change will impact local communities and the natural resources that your organization is working to protect. 

  • Overview of resources and tools that you can use to understand, communicate and plan for climate change impacts and actions.
