U.S. Forest Service biologist, Kent Woodruff shares the amazing discoveries of the Methow Beaver Project and their film "One Stick at a Time: Pursuing Climate Adaptation Solutions for a More Sustainable Future".

Kent will share this film about climate adaptation work that he led with with beavers and the attempts of others in Washington to find some solutions to the impacts that continue to become more intense. Since 2014, with support from the Wildlife Conservations Society’s Climate Adaptation Fund and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, he worked with an independent filmmaker to show what biologists are doing in the valley where he lives. He wants to share the film as a climate change adaptation conversation starter.

About the Speaker

Kent Woodruff, a retired US Forest Service biologist from Twisp, Washington, has been helping resource managers across the west engage in discussions about what we can do to soften the impacts of climate change. For 41 years Kent worked across the country as a biologist. Now he knows that all the resources we manage, from forests and rangelands, to streams and rivers, to roads and trails, to noxious weeds, to sensitive plants, to our important recreation areas are all facing additional stress from climate change that is increasing each year.
