Last year, the USDA Regional Climate Hubs released our first Hub-wide product, the Climate Hubs Tool Shed. The Tool Shed is an online, searchable database of tools (data-driven, interactive websites and mobile apps) that can assist land managers, land owners, and extension professionals in adapting working lands to the impacts of climate change. While many of the tools were developed specifically to address climate change, several were instead developed to aid in mitigating impacts of drought, pests, wildfire, and extreme weather. Although not necessarily designed to do so, many of these tools in the latter category are excellent resources for managing the effects of climate change on working lands, and having all these tools in one place can help users find the best tool for them. Take a look at the Tool Shed on the national Climate Hubs website. Feedback is always welcome and can be provided via the “Feedback” button on the site or directly to Sarah Wiener of the Southeast Regional Climate Hub (sswiener@ncsu.edu).
