Climate Conversations

Change, Grit and Perseverance

Idaho’s economy, health and lifestyles are tied inextricably to the health of our land and waters. Climate change is dramatically changing our landscapes and impacting our communities. We’re witnessing an increase in frequency, extent and severity of fires, as well as changes in snowpack and runoff due to factors such as increased temperatures and drought.

Climate Conversations is a collection of real stories about how Idahoans are stepping up, in practical and pioneering ways, to face the challenges posed by climate change.

The Nature Conservancy believes that talking openly about the impacts and solutions to the challenges we face with climate change will help Idaho secure a future in which nature and people thrive.
