VIRTUAL EVENT: 1854 Ceded Territory Climate Change Adaptation Planning

As the climate changes and seasonal patterns shift, the exercise of treaty rights and other life-ways becomes threatened. Our finned, winged, and 4-legged relatives feel those pressures too.

Building resilience to changing climate conditions is a process not an outcome. None of us are alone in this endeavor. It takes strong multi-disciplinary, multi-sector, multi-organization collaboration, partnerships, and trusting relationships to continue to ADAPT as conditions change. Join us and #BeResilient
