Climate Change and Climate Adaptation Training for Grasslands Conservation Practitioners
May 16 - May 27
To learn more about the Grasslands Training events please see this page.
North American grasslands are a regional priority of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). The South Central CASC, in partnership with the US FWS Science Applications Program, the Northwest CASC, and the North Central CASC, will be implementing a training series for grasslands conservation practitioners starting in May 2022. Through our training series, we will introduce practitioners to the science of climate change, explore the impacts, and discuss adaptation options available.
To this end, we have created several pieces of training to facilitate grasslands conservation practitioners’ knowledge both online and in-person.
