“One Stick at a Time” In pursuit of climate adaptations for a more sustainable future

Webinar Date: 
June 27, 2017


This film follows land managers in the Methow Valley, Washington for over a year, from forests to rivers, from fires to snowfall, from beaver capture to release as they try to come to grips with the impacts of climate change and the possible adaptation options right in front of them. It is a conversation starter for answering the question "What can I do?" With support from the best climate experts in the Northwest, it is a chance for each of us to think about what our landscapes will be like ten decades from now. It is a nudge to start today to make our surroundings better than they would be if we did nothing. The film was conceived as part of the 10 Decades Project, the goal of which is to inspire thousands of us to take measurable, concrete steps for climate adaptation in every area for which we are responsible.


Following the film we will host a discussion about concrete steps with Kent Woodruff, retiring Forest Service Wildlife Biologist and Methow Beaver Project Coordinator; Amelia Marchand, Colville Confederated Tribes Water Regulatory Specialist in the Environmental Trust Department; Lynn Helbrecht, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Climate Change Coordinator; and Molly Cross, The Wildlife Conservation Society’s North America Program Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator.
