Outreach, Classes, and Seminars

Meetings, Workshops, and Webinars

On This Page

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) periodically holds meetings, workshops, and webinars to:

  1. provide natural resource managers, policymakers, and other interested persons with up-to-date information on the impacts of climate variability and climate change on the PNW and western U.S., and
  2. discuss policy options for preparing for and coping with these climate impacts.

Information on these meetings is found below. Additionally, the CIG often takes a major role in climate-related meetings sponsored by other organizations. Information on those meetings is found in Other Meetings. Please email CIG if you would like more information about any of the workshops listed on this site.
