Abstract

In 2010, the Model Forest Policy Program (MFPP), the Cumberland River Compact, and the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association (NSEA) came together to create a climate adaptation plan for the community of Whatcom County, Washington. It came about because MFPP recognized the critical need for local community resilience against the impacts of climate change by protecting forest and water resources. This climate adaptation plan for Whatcom County, WA presents the results of a year of community team effort, deep and broad information gathering, critical analysis and thoughtful planning.

Organization Overview: 

In 1990, the Washington State Legislature created the Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group(RFEG) Program to involve local communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners in the state's salmon recovery efforts.

As one of the 14 RFEGs, NSEA was organized in 1990 as a coalition of community members and partners who work together for restoration of wild salmon runs in Whatcom County, from the Canadian border to the Skagit Watershed.

Adaptation work: 

Education 

We offer field-based environmental education programs for elementary through post-secondary level students and community members focusing on salmon, stream ecology, and stewardship.

Restoration

NSEA has completed over 120 restoration projects on over 15 miles of local streams. These projects address some of the causes of habitat degradation, including lack of stream side vegetation and livestock access.

Abstract

"Securing a Future for Fish and Wildlife: a Conservation Legacy for Iowans" is the first attempt to inventory the state's wildlife and evaluate the status of each species. It also examines stresses on wildlife and their habitats, including climate change, and presents conservation strategies for the next 25 years.

Abstract

Congress charged each state and territory with developing a wildlife action plan - in order to receive funds through the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program and the State Wildlife Grants Program.
