DCNR Conservation & Natural Resources Advisory Council To Hear Update On Implementing Climate Adaptation, Mitigation Plan May 29

DCNR’s Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council is scheduled to meet on May 29 to hear an update on implementation of DCNR’s Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Plan.
In June of last year, DCNR unveiled the Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Plan outlining 123 action steps to be undertaken to make the Commonwealth more resilient to potential impacts from a changing climate.
The 53-page plan including the vulnerabilities and recommendations was developed with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, a collaborative of the U.S. Forest Services, universities, conservation groups and the forest industry.
To test adaptive management practices on the ground, DCNR will be launching a climate change adaptation pilot project on public lands in the Southcentral part of the state, including the 85,000-acre Michaux State Forest, and Kings Gap, Pine Grove Furnace, and Caledonia state parks.
For more information on this topic, visit DCNR’s Addressing Climate Change On Public Lands webpage.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building starting at 10:00.
For more information and available handouts, visit DCNR’s Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council webpage.  Questions should be directed to Gretchen Leslie by calling 717-772-9084 or send email to:
