CalTrans: Modeling Habitat Connectivity for Climate Adaptation Across Multiple Land Uses @ Caltrans Basement Boardroom
Dec 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

CalTrans: Modeling Habitat Connectivity for Climate Adaptation Across Multiple Land Uses

Developing tools to assess habitat connectivity priorities across California will help agencies plan for infrastructure development in ways that allow wildlife to shift distributions in response to changing land use and climate. This study uses a new tool, Omniscape, to assess the contribution of all parts of the landscape to habitat connectivity across California. We integrated climate factors to model what areas are important for habitat connectivity today and in the future given changing conditions.
Please join us for the final Planning Horizons of 2018, Wednesday, December 19, at 10:00am in the Caltrans Basement Boardroom, 1120 N Street, Sacramento, CA 95814. If you are not Caltrans staff, please check in with the security guard. This event is AICP credit worthy, ask for more details. If you need parking, contact BOC [at] dot [dot] ca [dot] gov spaces are limited.

Our guest speakers are:

Dick Cameron, Director of Science for Land Programs, The Nature Conservancy

Carrie Schloss, Senior Scientist, The Nature Conservancy
