CSC Eastern Regional Workshop

Detailed Description

To help develop the structure of the NCCWSC and partnership mechanisms needed to
link climate science and national resource management in the United States, and to
provide impetus to the establishment of the NCCWSC, the USGS is convening a series of
regional workshops that build on the outcomes of a 2008 national workshop, bringing
together a broad range of stakeholders (federal and state agencies, academic institutions,
and NGOs).

On 6–7 May 2009, the Eastern Regional Meeting was held at the Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge.
Following a plenary session, participants split into three groups—Northeast, Southeast, and
Midwest—to develop input on a series of core issues.
