The New Brunswick Federation of Woodlot Owners (NBFWO) is working with partners to build the capacity to adapt to changing environmental conditions on private woodlots. This three year project (Fall 2018 - Fall 2021), funded by Natural Resources Canada and other provincial partners will support adaptation to climate change.

Project Objective

The project goals are to build the capacity of woodlot owners to make management decisions that are adapted to climate change, through education and implementation of best management practices, resulting in forests that are more climate resilient.

We will be holding workshops and webinars with Woodlot Owners, Foresters and Forest Technicians to raise awareness about climate change impacts on forests in New Brunswick and presenting silviculture prescription guidelines and tools that incorporate climate change adapation. Feedback from each workshop will be used to improve the guidelines and tools. In addition to training videos that will be created and posted online, we will also record the workshops so that people not able to attend will be able to view the videos online at their convenience.

 
 

Follow us on Facebook or email nbfwo.project@gmail.com to sign up to receive news and updates about this project. We will let you know when new workshops and webinars are announced and when new training videos are available.
