The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin

Our interactions and activities in the Framework: 

The Wisconsin Chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is participating in the Northwoods Climate Change Response Framework in several ways.  TNC's Caroline Lake Preserve in northern Wisconsin is the location of an adaptation demonstration project, which provides a real-world example of how climate change considerations can be incorporated into forest management. More details on that effort are available here.

Additionally, in spring 2012, TNC staff helped organize and host a region-wide workshop on Climate Change Adaptation throughout the entire Northwoods.  

Our broader climate change activities and perspectives: 

TNC staff in Michigan have been involved in other projects related to climate change and forest ecosystems, such as the Forest Scenarios Project with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and other partners.

The Nature Conservancy views climate change as one of the greatest threats to nature and people world-wide. As such, TNC has been at the forefront of adaptation and mitigation work for a number of years. To learn more about how we are working to help real people and places around the world adapt to climate change, please visit the TNC climate change webpage.
