This two and a half day workshop offered five sessions organized around a change adaptation framework. Each session was designed to be a shared learning process that would both test the framework as a tool and help the participants learn how they might use it in their workplaces. Sessions had a combination of speakers and group exercises. The workshop brought together nearly 170 individuals from more than 60 organizations to identify shared conservation goals and to explore regional scale strategies to conserve Southern Sierra Nevada natural resources in the face of rapid change and an uncertain future.
Public land managers and partners in the Southern Sierra Nevada Region are keenly aware that valued resources are at risk. Each entity has a compelling need to develop action plans that enable them to effectively respond to unprecedented and rapidly changing climatic, biogeophysical, and socio-economic conditions. This workshop was an opportunity to collectively move forward in our change adaptation capabilities using the latest information and tools.
Participants addressed the following question: Given uncertain and rapidly changing conditions in the 21st century, how do we best achieve our shared conservation goals for the Southern Sierra Nevada Region?
