Natural resource managers are tasked with understanding climate change impacts and using this knowledge in making decisions. This 6-month online course is designed to cover the fundamentals of climate science, provide an overview of tools and resources for climate adaptation, and increase climate literacy and communication skills. The course is designed to encourage networking among conservation professionals engaged in the management of fish, wildlife, habitat and cultural resources and provides participants an opportunity to interact with experts as they address case studies across multiple habitat types. 

Beginning in January, a webinar session with leading experts in these topics, will be held every other week for 5 months, for a total of 10 sessions. Pre-webinar assignments, class resources and discussion forums will be accessed through Moodle, a distance learning platform (no special software required). Course participants will then develop a final product (such as a report or presentation) addressing climate change in their management of natural resources.

The course was developed in partnership with staff from the USFWS’s NCTC, The Wildlife Society (TWS), the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA), the National Park Service (NPS), and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW).
