Climate Change and Public Lands: Exploring Impacts and Solutions

The effects of climate change are visible all around us, and we know that our wilderness areas and wild rivers are no exception. Although some public lands were originally established for resource extraction (like forestry and mining), we are now learning that they have immense value as tools to moderate climate change.

At this conference we will explore both how climate change is affecting public lands, and how public lands can mitigate climate change. We will examine these relationships through several lenses including our forests' and deserts' carbon-storing potential, wildlife habitat, and Central Oregon’s unique water cycle. As we look forward to creating a more climate-resilient future, considering the role that public lands play is imperative. We hope that you will join us for this unique conversation.
