2022 Southwest Adaptation Forum

Forum website.

The Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC) is proud to host the 2022 SWAF in Albuquerque, NM, in collaboration with the South Central CASC. Building on work started at the 2018(link is external) and 2021(link is external) SWAFs, we will further explore topics relevant to adaptation practitioners in the Southwest, such as cultural burning, drought, and ecosystem transformation. Keep an eye out for an invitation early next year.

Bridging the Gap: Connecting Native Plant Materials Development with Successful Habitat Restoration

Successful habitat restoration depends on an adequate supply of native plant materials. Planting a diversity of native species provides ecosystem services for pollinators, wildlife, and people, as well as increasing ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change and invasive species. Lack of quantity and quality of native plant materials, both seeds and nursery stock, has significantly hindered landscape recovery efforts. To address this need, native seed partnerships are collaborating to expand native plant materials programs in many regions of the country, including the Southwest and Pacific Northwest.

This conference will bring together native plant producers, restoration ecologists and practitioners, and seed researchers to discuss progress and challenges related to increasing the supply of ecologically-appropriate native seed. Seed partnerships and collaboratives are innovative and key groups that engage multiple perspectives, pool demand, and leverage efforts across regions. Author Doug Tallamy will present his work on the nature of oaks and Olivia Messinger Carril will present her work on pollinator networks. The conference will also include expert speakers and seed producer panels from the Pacific Northwest and Southwest.

The Willamette Valley Native Plant Partnership and the Southwest Seed Partnership, two regional plant materials partnerships coordinated by the Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE), have come together to host the 2022 Native Plant Materials Virtual Conference. Registration includes links to live conference webinars on January 12 & 13 (Zoom via Whova platform), speaker bios, detailed agenda, and networking opportunities.

2022 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit

Summit website.

In partnership with the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians, the Pala Band of Mission Indians, and the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals, the Climate Science Alliance is excited to co-host the 2022 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit (SWTCCS). Join us May 16-18, 2022 for this year’s theme: “Exploring the Fire Within Us”

The 2022 SWTCCS will build upon key takeaways from the 2019 SWTCCS held in Idyllwild, CA. In 2022, we will once again bring together Tribal leaders, professionals, and community members from across the Southwest to explore the kinship with fire and its role in community, conservation, and climate change adaptation while putting our own unique twist with hands-on activities, networking, and professional training opportunities.

Fire and Climate: Impacts, Issues, and Futures

Visit event website.

Fire and Climate 2022 will bring attention to one of the most important forces shaping wildfire and better prepare how we can focus and respond to this formidable challenge in the new decade. This conference will feature insights, case studies, innovations and opinions from around the world to begin to form a collective, global approach to the wildfire challenge. California has been at the forefront of innovation in wildland fire management and holding a conference in California to fully leverage the lessons learned and adaptive behaviors that will continue to emerge after the Camp Fire will benefit the entire international wildland fire community.
