Manomet Center receives grant for forestry research

The Manomet Center’s Climate Services program was recently awarded a grant from The Sustainable Forestry Initiative Inc. 

 The grant will support Manomet’s development of the Resiliency Assessment Framework, a scalable approach for assessing forest resilience to climate change, demonstrating the adaptation and mitigation value of forestlands certified to SFI, and incorporating climate opportunities and risks in planning and management.

“The SFI grant provides a great opportunity for Manomet to work with our Climate Smart Land Network members to improve understanding of regional and local climate/forest interactions and to incorporate that information in planning and management,” said Eric Walberg, Senior Program Leader, of Manomet’s Climate Services Program.
