Patricia Leopold

Climate Change Outreach Specialist

I am a member of a small team that works to develop and expand the Climate Change Response Framework projects, which provide an integrated set of tools, partnerships, and actions to support climate-informed conservation and forest management. Six Framework projects encompass 20 states, including 14 National Forests and millions of acres of forestland. Each regional project interweaves four components: science and management partnerships, vulnerability assessments, adaptation resources, and demonstration projects.

I coordinate two Framework projects covering the Central Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic regions. Read more about these projects at
