Come learn about the recently released draft National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy that was developed through state, tribal, and federal agency partnerships. This strategy represents a draft framework for unified action to help decision makers and resource managers prepare for and reduce the impacts of climate change on wildlife species, ecosystems, and the people and economies that depend on them.

This public information session is an opportunity to learn more about the development and goals of the strategy, ask questions and provide comments verbally or in writing.
