Climate Change is Upon Us


SCROLL DOWN

Climate Change is Upon Us


"I look at this last year as a dress rehearsal for climate change. . .  All scenarios say it's going to be warmer, we're going to have more and more years like we just experienced in 2014 and 2015, with the snowpack drought, and fires, and low summer stream flows.  We know all of that.  So, we know enough to act."

– Amy Snover, director of UW Climate Impacts Group

Our Landscapes Are Stressed


Our Landscapes Are Stressed


"The history of conservation in western society has all been about maintaining a historic ideal of what the landscape looked like . . . Climate change is throwing water in the face of that idea . . . Thinking about Adaptation, rather than think about the past ideal, we need to think about what is the future ideal."

– Lara Hansen, executive director of EcoAdapt

We Need a New Management Paradigm


We Need a New Management Paradigm


"The sentence of 'We need to do restoration work' has already been there. Climate change is the exclamation points at the end of the sentence. It's this focused emphasis; we need to get going."

-Mike Borowski, Timber Sale Administrator, Methow Valley Ranger District, USFS

"We can respond in a measured way, one day at a time, one decade at a time, to anticipate what's going to happen, and then try to reduce the adverse impacts."

-Kent Woodruff, Wildlife Biologist, Methow Valley Ranger District, USFS

"Change is not easy . . . being a manager faced with that, I'm ready to face those unknowns, those challenges, I'm not going to give up on these ecosystems and species that I care about."

-Eireann Pederson, Forester, Chelan Ranger District, USFS

To Build Resiliency


To Build Resiliency


"So the question becomes, do you want to have a voice in creating the world that you live in?  Or do you want to just let it happen around you?  We can't wait until we've fallen off the cliff to apply the brakes."
