Climate Adaptation Science Centers


The "Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series" is a quarterly webinar series hosted by the National CASC. Speakers discuss CASC-funded research projects on climate change effects on fish, wildlife, and communities across the U.S. and how these results can inform resource management decisions at local, state, and federal levels.

These events are open to the public and last approximately one hour. After the event, recordings and transcripts are made available on the CASC website. Webinars are produced through a partnership with the National Conservation Training Center and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
