Central AK Parks Scenarios Workshop - April 16-18, 2012
A series of two pre-workshop webinars provided the basis upon which this workshop was built. A brief description of each follows: Pre-workshop Webinar #1, April 4th, 2012 - Title: Overview of scenario planning process; Webinar #2 - April 11th, 2012 - Title: Climate Drivers and Climate Impacts for Central Alaska Parks.
The Workshop - Exploring Climate Change and its Implications for Central Alaska Parks
Scenarios can be used as reference for parks working to identify plausible desired future conditions for General Management Plans, Resource Stewardship Plans and the like. Some resources are likely to change regardless of what we do. The no-regrets management actions and research needs that we've identified can also be used for updating short- and longer-term work plans and proposals for parks and cooperating groups.
