Our climate partnerships span research, planning and on-the-ground adaptation activities. Given the spectrum of projected climate impacts on natural systems that sustain biodiversity and provide us with water to drink, soil to grow food and forests for timber and recreation, we can only achieve our conservation goals by engaging with partners across the Great Lakes region. These partnerships inform how we can better share and communicate climate information that advances our conservation investments.
