VIDEO: Climate Change and California Conservation
FRIDAY JUN 24 2011
Climate change planning and land use planning are two key issues for resources managers in California -- from federal agencies down to county and city offices. How can all these different levels of government work together to use solid science and plan for the future?

In this video produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Pacific Southwest Region office, we get a glimpse of the answers.

Co-hosted by USFWS and USGS WERC on the campus of California State University, Sacramento, the CA LCC will support landscape-level scientific research and foster collaborations among federal, state, local and private agencies.

Students at Sacramento State will also benefit from the new CA LCC efforts, as Dr. Schwarzbach explains.
