Climate change impacts are unique in the Southeast Alaska region and are longer term impacts such as heavy rains causing flooding, ocean acidification, warmer waters, snowfall variations, warm Springs followed by frost affecting wild berry production, invasive species, and toxins in the marine environment. These factors impact food security and culturally important resources. This project will provide a summit for Southeast Alaska tribal environmental coordinators and other stakeholders to support natural and cultural resource conservation in the face of climate change.
