Balch works with Manomet Center for Conservation Science developing their Climate Smart Landowner Network. Read more about this program below.
Practical forest climate adaptation measures from the Climate Smart Land Network, a program of Manomet, Inc.
When the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere chart looks like this, you know that change is coming.
The science information being synthesized and distributed applies to all forest land. Manomet is now focusing on larger owners simply to affect as many acres as possible as soon as possible. Visit http://climatesmartnetwork.org/ to see all our science bulletins and blogs.
The Climate Smart Land Network (CSLN) is an alliance of rural landowners and land managers that are working together to respond to the challenges posed by climate change. The program is structured to assist Network members in identifying and implementing pragmatic on-the-ground solutions that both meet their management goals and increase natural system resiliency to climate change.
The Climate Smart Land Network bridges the gap between climate science and on-the-ground application. The Network already contains over 15.2 million acres of managed forest. The goal is to enroll 30 million acres in the program over the first four years. The CSLN provides a simple and direct method of including climate change concerns in your management planning and demonstrating that your organization is proactively engaged in seeking climate solutions.
Who are the current members?
The Climate Smart Land Network is growing rapidly and currently includes 15.2 million acres across North America.
