Summary: 

According to ClimateBC projections, the Xeni Gwet’in Caretaker Area (XGCA) can expect to see increased warming (~+2.5°C) and precipitation (~+104 mm) by 2050. Seasonally, most of the temperature increase will occur in the winter and spring and most of the precipitation increase will occur during the fall and winter, with summers becoming drier overall.

Summary: 

The Lower Willamette region is located in northwestern Oregon and is predicted to experience climate changes including increases in temperature, extreme weather events, and reduced snowpack. To address these challenges, the Climate Leadership Initiative (CLI) conducted a series of workshops and published a report entitled “Building Climate Resiliency in the Lower Willamette Region of Western Oregon.” The report provides 40 multi-sector adaptation recommendations to prepare the Portland area for a changing climate.

Sea Change Consulting (SCC) was established in 2010 and is aimed at providing capacity building support to communities, and natural resources management agencies and organizations. To do this, SCC works directly with on the ground partners to identify needs, define project objectives, and design locally relevant approaches to achieve practical solutions to capacity needs.

Summary: 

The Clark Fork watershed extends from Butte, MT to Sandpoint, ID and drains nearly the entire western portion of Montana. Based on decades of data and observations, it is clear that the Clark Fork River basin is already experiencing changing climate conditions including droughts, increased wildfires, decreased snowpack, shrinking glaciers, and early runoff.

Founded in 1985, the Clark Fork Coalition is dedicated to protecting and restoring the Clark Fork River basin, a 22,000-square-mile area draining western Montana and northern Idaho. We have a 25-year-long record of substantial achievements improving the health of the watershed. 

Side by side with citizens, scientists, landowners, business leaders, and public officials, we have spearheaded initiatives that have delivered important gains, including:

The Midwest Region is committed to expanding partnerships, offering innovative opportunities to enhance the Region, promoting healthy fish and wildlife trust species populations and habitats to support them and providing the public with quality hunting, fishing, wildlife watching, and other wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities on Service lands.
