From prehistoric times to
the present, human societies have successfully adapted to the challenges of a
changing West, including periods of severe drought, limitations created by scarce
resources and shifting cultural and economic pressures. Now, the American West
is entering an era of unprecedented change brought on by new climate realities,
which will test our capacity for adaptation as well as challenge the resilience
of the region's native flora and fauna. It is therefore paramount that we find
and share inspiring ideas and practical strategies that help all of the
region's inhabitants adapt to a rapidly changing world.
We will hear from scientists, ranchers, farmers, conservationists, urban planners and others who have bright ideas and important tools to share from their adaptation toolbox.
