The North Central Climate Collaborative hosted a Northern Great Plains Climate Workshop on October 9-11, 2018 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Changes in climate are causing more extreme weather events and shifting crops, cropping seasons, and plant hardiness zones. This workshop focused on climate issues facing the Great Plains with the aim of helping educators, natural resource managers, conservation professionals, and outreach specialists incorporate climate and weather information and climate-informed decision-making into their programming and outreach.
Workshop topics included:
- Climate Impacts
- Climate tools and applications
- Agriculture and Climate
- Communities and Youth and Climate
- Tribal Perspectives on Climate
- Climate communication strategies
- Take-home climate information applications
This workshop was made possible thanks to support from the National Integrated Drought Information System and the North Central Region Water Network.
