Documents for the Climate Change Response Framework in Northern Wisconsin
The Climate Change Response Framework Project in Northern Wisconsin is a collaborative effort among the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, the USDA Forest Service Eastern Region, Northern Research Station, Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry, and academic institutions. It incorporates information and perspectives from numerous sources and ultimately proposes strategies and approaches for responding to climate change in northern Wisconsin Forests. Efforts are underway to expand to the rest of the Northwoods and to other regions.
