Need information on climate science and what climate variability means for agriculture and communities? We’re here to help.
The North Central Climate Collaborative (NC3) is made up of Extension professionals from across the region who are working to increase the flow and usability of climate information for Extension, farmers, natural resource managers, and communities. The team is working to increase the adoption of climate-smart practices, improving water management, while maintaining profitability.

Learning from your Neighbor: Climate Resiliency in Agriculture
Monday, April 26th at 2pm CT – Watch the Recording
More and more agricultural producers are adopting innovative management practices to bolster their operations’ resiliency to weather and climate risks. Extension and agricultural producers, throughout the USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub’s six-state region, collaborated to develop an online, interactive StoryMap, “Learning From Your Neighbor: Climate Resiliency in Agriculture.” Through this immersive website, producers share their stories about the benefits, challenges, and valuable lessons learned while adopting weather-resilient and climate-smart practices!
On Monday, April 26th Windy Kelly, Regional Extension Program Coordinator for the USDA Northern Plains Climate Hub and Weather Variability and Agricultural Resiliency Specialist at the University of Wyoming Extension, spoke about the project and its outcomes.
