Climate change is a pressing issue for natural resources managers in Wisconsin and throughout the nation. How does the changing climate impact Wisconsin’s unique ecosystems, wildlife species, native cultures, and political policy? This year’s Spring Seminar Series will feature interdisciplinary perspectives on climate change from natural resources professionals. We will hear from researchers and managers who study the impacts of climate change on our natural resources and work to implement appropriate management techniques and policies in its wake. We hope you join us!
