Climate Adaptation - Resiliency Strategies for the New Normal
How will changing climate, seasonal temperature, precipitation and stream flows affect salmon and wildlife habitat in the Sandy River watershed? How can we add or adjust conservation strategies toward resilient watershed conditions in the future? Join us for a day-long workshop to consider how to foster restoration success in a changing world.
Our event will be held in the Visual Arts Center on Mt Hood Community College Campus.
