Upcoming Webinar: Climate Change Communication in Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites: Information for Managers and Stakeholders
Meet Tunde Ojewola, one of our 2017-2018 Science to Action Fellows!
The Science to Action Fellowship is provided through a partnership between the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center and Michigan State University. The program supports graduate students in developing a product that puts science into action, directly applying scientific research related to climate change impacts on fish, wildlife, or ecosystems to decision making about natural resources. For his fellowship, Tunde is researching managers’ perceptions on climate change.

On June 21, 2018 at 3:00 PM EDT, Tunde will be presenting on his fellowship research. His presentation, “Climate Change Communication in Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites: A Decision Support Tool for Managers,” will discuss an online decision support tool and story maps describing the distribution of climate change impacts as perceived by Missouri State Park employees. The products from his fellowship can help managers and other stakeholders better understand climate change impacts within the state. Additionally, these tools can assist managers in developing communication strategies, which would bridge the gap between perception and action.
