The Adaptation Partners effort was launched in 2008 with the goal of helping create climate adaptation strategies for forests across the Pacific Northwest. The project has since expanded to included other landscape types. The first landscape to receive an adaptation plan was the Olympic forest in northern Washington. The project was named the Olympic Adaptation Partnership. This pattern of seeking out multiple and varied collaborators was extended to other Adaptation Partnerships as well. Participants in the Adaptation Partnerships included representatives from the National Parks, National Forests, designated Wilderness areas, state lands, and Indian reservations.
