Preparing for Climate Change in King County, Washington
King County and National Wildlife Federation have developed a tool, Forestry Climate Preparedness and Response (CPR), that helps landowners determine the health of their yard and forestland, and then develop a plan for making their property more resilient to the impacts of climate change. The tool can be used by owners to make all types of properties more resilient to climate change, from private homes to schools to public parks or businesses.
What can you do with Forestry CPR?
This tool acts as a model for communities all over the country who are preparing for the impacts of climate change
Using the tool, landowners can learn:
