Earlier this year, Resilient Restoration research partner Dr. Janet Franklin gave a presentation to the San Diego Master Gardener Association entitled “Improving Climate Resilience Through Adaptation Management of Natural Vegetation in California.”


Dr. Franklin began her presentation with a history of climate change, how it impacts the highly biodiverse Mediterranean region of California, and an overview of our Resilient Restoration project which is leveraging all this data. Specifically, she described how climate change impacts will increase the vulnerability of plant species.



The presentation described how climate change models help assess climate risks for different plant species, such as the red fir (Abies magnifica), which will experience less availability of habitat range as climate change worsens.


 

The Resilient Restoration project, funded by the California Strategic Growth Council's Climate Change Research Program, is a collaborative effort of the Climate Science Alliance's Tribal Working Group, University of California Riverside, and San Diego State University. The goal of the Resilient Restoration project is to support our partners to advance adaptation and resilience activities through the development of knowledge and supporting actions that enhance persistence of cultural practices with a focus on preserving the ecosystems and species that are integral to Tribal communities.


Thank you to the Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group members for your leadership role in the Resilient Restoration project and laying out our vision, priorities, goals, and deliverables.

Resilient Restoration is supported by California Strategic Growth Council’s Climate Change Research Program with funds from California Climate Investments—Cap-and-Trade Dollars at Work.
