Navigating the Climate Adaptation Science Centers: A National Network of Climate Adaptation Support for Native Nations


10 to 11 a.m., April 28, 2021

From the expansion of invasive species to wildfire, from drought to sea-level rise, climate change creates new and evolving challenges for ecosystems across the nation. The USGS Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) are a partnership-driven program that teams scientific researchers with natural and cultural resource managers and local communities to help fish, wildlife, waters, and lands across the country adapt to changing conditions.

Tribal resilience liaisons from several Climate Adaptation Science Centers will lead an introduction to the CASCs and the tribal resilience liaison network. They will share some examples of cultural resource projects and efforts, and share insights on how to engage with CASCs for support.

Presenters for this session will be:
April Taylor, South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center
Althea Walker, Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center
Stefan Tangen, North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center
Casey Thornburgh, Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center

*This webinar is being hosted by the National Park Service as part of a larger series that promotes dialogue on climate change issues of importance to Tribal Citizens and Nations.
