Since the inception of the NE CSC in 2012, our stakeholder partners have been guiding our science directions and priorities so that together we can improve the way our climate science informs decisions and actions in adapting to a changing climate. For our Regional Science Meeting, we gathered our scientists and partners to reflect on our collaborative work to incorporate climate science in the management of natural and cultural resources in the Northeast and Midwest and determined future directions and needs for our region.  The program included presentations, panel discussions and needs assessments for incorporating climate science into management of priority natural resources. 

The themes related to climate science, impacts, and actionable science that we explored were:

  • Conservation Across Landscapes: Aquatic Connectivity and Terrestrial Landscape Conservation Design
  • Fish and Wildlife
  • Forest Management and Adaptation
  • Coastal Resilience: Great Lakes and Atlantic Coasts
  • Floodplains and Wetlands
  • Climate Science Informing Management
