Karuk Final Climate Adaptation Plan

Within Karuk Aboriginal Territory on the mid Klamath, the effects of climate change are immediate and occurring now (Butz and Sanford 2011, Butz et al 2015, Vander Schaaf et al. 2004, Olson et al. 2012, Damschen et al. 2010, Harrison et al. 2010). Responding to these impacts and simultaneously anticipating future impacts is a challenging task. Climate change is one of the most dramatic and widespread impacts the modern world has faced and attempting to come to terms with the data and implications can be daunting. Fortunately, we are not facing it alone.

Karuk Tribe Department of Natural Resources: Eco-Cultural Resources Management Plan

The Karuk Tribe of California (Karuk Tribe) is a federally recognized Indian Tribe (73 Fed. Reg. 18,535, 18, 544 (April 4, 2008)) occupying aboriginal land along the middle course of the Klamath and Salmon Rivers in Northern California. The Tribe’s Aboriginal Territory has been previously mapped and includes an estimated 1.38 million acres, within the Klamath River Basin. This Territory is the land base that was utilized in the process of receiving a determination of Tribal recognition.

Risk-Based Vulnerability Assessment of the Indian River Lagoon to Climate Change

The National Estuary Program (NEP) is a non-regulatory program established by the U.S. Congress and administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The NEP was authorized by Section 320 of the Clean Water Act in 1987. Each estuary in the NEP was designated by the U.S. Congress as an “Estuary of National Significance.” Today, 28 estuaries located along the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coasts and in Puerto Rico have been designated as estuaries of national significance. 

Co-Producing Science to Inform Sea-Level Rise Vulnerability and Adaptation for Wetlands

This webinar is the third of the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center's Spring Skills-building Webinar Series on Co-Production in Practice: Examples from the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center. This webinar series is designed to illustrate the process of co-production using examples from a wide range of projects funded by the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center. Each webinar provides practices and lessons learned for those wanting to take a co-production approach to generating actionable science to inform decision-making in a changing climate. 

Communication as an Essential Ingredient for Actionable Science

Engaging scientists and decision-makers in the co-production of knowledge is considered a best practice for generating science that is likely to be useful and used in addressing pressing environmental challenges. Effective, ongoing communication is vital to the success of this highly collaborative research approach, from a project’s inception through dissemination of results (and beyond!). In this webinar, Dr.

Managing Western Washington Wildfire Risk in a Changing Climate

In recent years, concern has risen among western Washington communities about climate change and the impacts of increased wildfire risk in the region. This concern is motivated by large wildfires in eastern Washington and California, smoke events in western Washington, and growing evidence that changes in the climate are increasing the likelihood of wildfire in the Pacific Northwest.
