CAMNet Rendezvous 2010

Tobosa GrasslandOn March 7-9, 2010, CAMNet, The Nature Conservancy, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution hosted the Fourth Annual Collaborative Adaptive Management (CAMNet) Rendezvous in Tucson, Arizona

The CAMNet Rendezvous was designed to bring together innovative natural resource managers, policy-makers, scientists, and citizens to share successes, challenges and lessons learned from projects that are implementing collaborative adaptive management. In the tradition of the annual gathering of fur trappers in the American West in the 1800s, this event offered a forum to share stories, exchange information, and celebrate with one another.

The program for 2010 featured the following components:

  • Keynote addresses by Lynn Scarlett, Marstel-Day, and former Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Interior, Jonathan Overpeck, Lead Author, UN International Panel on Climate Change, Fourth Assessment, and Robin Craig, Professor of Law, Florida State University College of Law;
  • A regional panel of CAM programs in the Southwestern U.S.;
  • Reception and displays from CAM programs across the country;
  • In depth learning from the experience of the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area Adaptive Management Program through a presentation and field visit; and
  • Discussion of the implications of climate change for natural resources management and if/how CAM can help address the challenges of a changing climate.

Below you will find a summary of the discussions as well as presentations made at the event.

The 2010 CAMNet Rendezvous was made possible by support from The Nature Conservancy, PBS&J, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and University of Missouri.
