A guide to climate-smart meadow restoration in the Sierra Nevada and southern Cascades

The purpose of this handbook is to demonstrate how climate change considerations can be integrated into planning and design for Sierra meadow restoration projects and provide recommendations of best management practices to ensure restored meadows are resilient to climate change. Our approach combines a traditional climate change vulnerability assessment with Point Blue’s climate-smart restoration principles to describe both the potential vulnerabilities that climate change poses to achieving restoration goals as well as specific restoration and management actions that can help address and reduce identified vulnerabilities.
