Climate Change Adaptation Resource Guide
Climate change is a global problem, but its effects are felt locally. For a number of years, national parks have been involved in climate change mitigation through efforts like Climate Friendly Parks but because the effects of climate change are already being experienced, mitigation is not enough. Parks and their communities will need to adapt. This resource guide highlights some collaborative adaptation efforts in the Great Lakes region, identifies future opportunities and will hopefully provide inspiration for others around the country.
Communities and Parks: Communicating Climate Change
NPCA and the NPS Climate Change Response Program partnered on a project to engage local communities in developing sustainable strategies and tools to communicate the local effects of climate change and to foster better park/community engagement around climate change. This set of summary reports highlights community surveys and workshops that were conducted in three pilot locations – Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Kenai Fjords and Glacier National Parks.
