Climate Change Hasn't Stopped for a Pandemic - Adapting Parks for Sea Level Rise, Flooding, and Fire
The impact of climate change on parks and protected areas is accelerating, resulting in rising temperatures, more intense and more frequent wildfires, increasingly intense river flooding, and the inundation of low-lying coastal areas due to sea level rise. This webinar will highlight the strategies that three urban park sites, the Bay Area’s Golden Gate National Recreation Area, San Francisco’s Crissy Field, and Louisville’s Ohio River Greenway are using to address the impacts of fire, flooding, and sea level rise.
After attending this webinar participants should be able to:
- Understand how climate is changing wildland fire in the western US and how park managers are responding and adapting
- Discuss the importance of talking about sea level rise now
- Review strategies for engaging stakeholders in sea level rise planning
- Understand how to create informative and engaging planning tools for sea level rise
