Kim Roeland of City of San Diego will discuss Climate-Smart Conservation in the Tecolote Canyon.

Over 50,000 acres of conserved open space are owned and managed by the City of San Diego. City staff are responsible for conducting monitoring and management actions which are critical to maintaining and improving the biological value of the land. The City’s commitment to monitoring and managing open space led to application of the National Wildlife Federation’s Climate-Smart Conservation: Putting Adaptation Principles into Practice to integrate climate change adaptation into land management for the Tecolote Canyon Natural Park Natural Resource Management Plan.
