Climate adaptation planning and implementation is critical to the resiliency of human communities and natural ecosystems in the Great Lakes. While community leaders and conservation practitioners increasingly recognize the current and future impacts of climate change, it can often be difficult to translate that awareness into meaningful strategies that promote adaptation and resilience.

 

As part of an ongoing regional dialogue on ecosystem-focused climate adaptation, Chicago Wilderness is hosting a webinar to explore climate planning in the Great Lakes watershed. Staff from the Alliance for the Great Lakes and The Field Museum will discuss two projects in which they worked with local stakeholders to incorporate climate considerations into land-use and natural resource planning efforts in the Trail Creek watershed in Michigan City, IN and coastal ravine habitats of Illinois and Wisconsin.

  • Angela Larsen, Community Resilience Manager for the Alliance for the Great Lakes
