A new menu of climate adaptation strategies and approaches details a range of actions to help Great Lakes coastal ecosystems cope with climate change. The menu can be used by natural resources professionals to support management decisions for a variety of coastal ecosystems across the Great Lakes states. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) led an author team of over 20 regional managers and scientists to develop the 6 strategies and 29 adaptation approaches. It has been used with the Adaptation Workbook to plan climate-informed tactics for several real-world projects. Read more at https://forestadaptation.org/coastal
