The Climate Science Alliance supports San Diego State University’s Institute for Ecological Monitoring and Management (IEMM) in kicking off the first phase of the Connecting Wildlands and Communities project. The goal of this project is to create climate-ready landscapes and local communities in southern California by bringing together land use and conservation planning to reduce fire risk, promote water sustainability, and preserve biodiversity through integrated planning. The project, which is funded by a Strategic Growth Council grant through the California Climate Investments Initiative, is led by IEMM in partnership with the Climate Science Alliance, the San Diego Association of Governments, the Southern California Association of Governments, among others.

This will be a stakeholder-driven effort, and as such, we would like to invite you to join us for the first partner meetings.

If you are based in San Diego, Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Bernardino Counties and interested in climate resilience for watersheds and wildlands, we encourage you to participate in these upcoming workshops:

January 30, 2019 10AM-12PM at the Vista Civic Center in Vista*.

RSVP here.

February 21, 2019 2:30-4:30PM at the Southern California Association of Governments office in Los Angeles.

RSVP here.

February 28, 2019 10AM-12PM at Pala. This meeting is for Tribal staff and members with the goal of focusing on Tribal-specific issues.

The workshop and discussion will focus on the project vision and core focal areas including climate resilient ecosystems and community planning and implementation, with a specific emphasis on connected landscapes, wildfire, water sustainability, and land conservation.

Please RSVP here to let us know which of the meetings you plan to attend or if you’re unavailable for these meetings, but would like to receive updates on this project and be notified of future meetings. Please feel free to share this invite with anyone else who may be interested in climate resilient ecosystems and community planning and implementation. You can also learn more about the project at www.climatesciencealliance.org/cwc.

*The location for the January 30, 2019 meeting has been changed from Carlsbad to Vista to avoid potential conflict resulting from the federal government shutdown.
