Last fall and this spring I’ve been developing a climate change response strategy and action plan for the NPS Southeast Region. The plan sets goals for the NPS Southeast Region and identifies how the Region can meet those goals. To support the Plan, I hosted calls with Superintendents of Parks to get their on-the-ground perspective and needs. A lot of what we talked about focused around how to communicate about climate change and support our folks working in the field to enable them to talk with visitors about climate change and the changes they are seeing in Parks. It was wonderful to get the Superintendents viewpoint and I hope our strategy and action plan will set the stage for supporting them and their staffs as we all respond to climate change.
