Search Toolkit

Conservation in a Changing Climate offers resources to support land trust’s ongoing work to protect the places we love. Climate change presents a host of new management challenges, as well as opportunities for planning interventions that can help communities mitigate and adapt to changing conditions.

Resources in this Library can be searched by term, geographically by region, or according to what “land type” or “climate impact” relates to the content. Content is also organized and searchable by types of posts, including geospatial tools, webinars, websites, publications, as well as funding opportunities and technical assistance programs. Key resources are tagged with the themes of “learn,” “plan,” “adapt,” and “inspire“.  You can use the advanced search bar to match “any” or “all” combinations of terms to limit or expand your results.

If you aren’t sure where to get started, try taking the “self-assessment” or the guidance pages in the “get started” section. If have questions, please contact us and we will respond as soon as possible.

Corridors and Climate: Planning for Regional Species Flow - Lakes Region Climate-Inclusive Conservation Plan Looks Beyond Borders

Conservation organizations in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire have been collaborating since 2010 to develop and implement a regional strategic conservation plan to address regional conservation opportunities and threats.  This cutting-edge assessment and planning initiative identified a connected network of climate-resilient sites with the characteristics needed to ensure plant and animal species can persist as the climate changes. By incorporating this and other data, including habitat and species movements identified in New Hampshire’s Wildlife Action Plan, these organizations are now able to better identify and protect resilient sites in the Lakes Region that will support plant and animal adaptation as the climate changes in New Hampshire.
