The Adapting Michigan Wetlands to Climate Change workshop was held on May 15, 2018. NIACS collaborated with the Michigan Wetlands Association to share climate change and adaptation tools with the MWA. Participants used the menus of strategies and approaches for both forested watershed and non-forested wetland systems at this meeting.
Danielle Shannon is a climate adaptation specialist and the coordinator of the USDA Northern Forests Climate Hub. Danielle helps land managers cope with and adapt to the challenges of climate change in forested watersheds, and in wetland management.
As a Fellow for the Northern Forests Climate Hub at NIACS, his primary role is to add capacity to the education and outreach efforts of the Climate Change Response Framework while conducting research on understanding forest adaptation decision making of land managers and woodland owners throughout the Midwest and New England.
