Partnership yields options for adapting to climate change on the Olympic Peninsula
Date:1/9/2012

Federal land managers on the Olympic Peninsula joined in an exceptional partnership with the Pacific Northwest Research Station and the University of Washington to develop a set of science-based options that will help them manage their forests for resiliency and sustainability in the face of a changing climate.

The optionswhich address management of vegetation, hydrology, roads, fish, and wildlife on the peninsulaare published in Adapting to Climate Change at Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park, a new U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station report available online at http://treesearch.fs.fed.us/pubs/38702 and in print by request.

"Climate change is a major challenge to resource managers because of the magnitude of its projected effects and because it's uncertain exactly when they will occur," said David L. Peterson, a station research biologist and the project's principal investigator. "These adaptation options can help managers take the first steps to incorporating climate change into their management plans and counteracting the negative effects of climate change."

The options are a direct outcome of a science-management partnership between the Forest Service and National Park Service that began in 2008 and was charged with developing adaptation strategies and activities for federal forests on the Olympic Peninsula. The partnership is an excellent example of the two agencies working together to plan for climate change adaptation.

"This case study was motivated by the desire of Federal forest managers to develop adaptation alternatives to managing resources in our changing environment," said Dale Hom, Forest Supervisor for Olympic National Forest.

Peterson organized the partnership along with University of Washington research ecologist Jessica Halofskywho served as the project's leadformer Olympic National Forest natural resources
