Climate change is one of the most important environmental challenges facing civilization. Managing how carbon is taken in, stored, and released from natural systems has the potential to mitigate the rate and extent of future climate change. This conference focused on how moving towards a low carbon economy may alter management strategies, economics, plans, and on-the-ground practices of natural resource managers. The event included two days of presentations, a poster session, an evening speaker open to the public, a field trip, and opportunities for informal dialogue among participants and presenters. About 85 people attended the conference.
