National Park Services: Navigating the CASC Network, Support for Native Nations
April 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
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
