Climate change in the Adirondacks is affecting our forests, waterways, economies, and communities. How we respond to these changes will determine the region’s economic and environmental viability in the years to come.
To help us think through these challenges as a region, North Country Climate Reality (NCCR) is inviting all communities to learn, plan and network in preparation for climate change’s growing impacts on the Adirondacks. On October 27, 2018, NCCR is holding the first Adirondack Communities: Planning for and Responding to Climate Change conference, co-sponsored by SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury.
Adirondack Communities: Planning for and Responding to Climate Change is a unique event; a one-time opportunity for local communities and businesses to come together to address climate change in a very practical way. The conference is designed to educate everyone and share experiences and ideas about the future.  Participants will be discussing (1) climate change information and impacts; (2) proactive solutions for local town governments; and (3) actions for all community members.
