Climate Adaptation: A Resource Guide for Great Lakes National Parks and Communities

Climate Adaptation Resource Guide (1.9 MB)

Climate change is a global problem, but its effects are felt locally. Farmers in the Midwest have increasingly experienced severe droughts, while people living along the Great Lakes are watching their waterlines retreat. City-dwellers feel the stress of heat waves, gardeners cope with drought, and wildlife species are shifting their ranges. Such changes are altering the ways we live, work, and play at home and in the national parks.
