Indiana Dunes Climate Change Workshop

Indiana Dunes Workshop (4.37 MB)

National Parks Conservation Association and the National Park Service Climate Change Response Program are collaborating on a project focused on the development and application of sustainable strategies and tools for communicating science-based messages about climate change affecting local communities and the national parks.

The goal is to foster partnerships between NPS Research Learning Centers, parks and partners, such as small businesses in gateway communities, around local climate change response initiatives.

Indiana Dunes and the Great Lakes Research and Learning Center were selected as one of the three pilot parks, along with Kenai Fjords in Alaska and Glacier National Park in Montana, to participate in a survey and later hold a workshop with various stakeholders in each of those 3 regions.
