Providing Support for the Development of a Tribal Forest Adaptation Menu

In early 2017 Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC) began work with the US Forest Service's Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) to develop a Tribally focused adaptation menu based on the "Forest Adaptation Resources: climate change tools and approaches for land managers" workbook. College of Menominee Nation Sustainable Development Institute (CMN SDI)will support this work by participating in meetings, developing appropriate sections, and bringing further NE CASC resources and support to bear when identified and requested.

Relocating Plants for Conservation and Restoration: Developing a Risk Assessment Framework

There is growing interest in the facilitated movement of plants as a means of conserving or restoring species and habitats, as climate conditions and management goals change. For example, plants might be relocated to support pollinator conservation or the restoration of prairies. Some land managers, in an effort to be proactive in the face of changing environmental conditions, are also considering relocating plants to sites that are considered more similar to anticipated future conditions. However, moving plants can be ecologically and economically risky.
