This spring, 20 residents of Wayne, Sullivan, Delaware, and Pike Counties participated in a nine-week virtual course in climate change science and communication. This course was organized by regional leaders with the Earth to Sky Interagency Partnership, a collaboration between NASA, the National Park Service, and other organizations to promote access to NASA climate science and support excellent climate communication. The course focused on local impacts of climate change on agriculture, health, forests, and aquatic ecosystems, as well as environmental justice in the Upper Delaware River Watershed. Groups from each county developed action plans to communicate issues relevant to their communities. At this year’s SEEDS annual membership meeting, these groups will present their experience and the projects they’re undertaking to achieve their goals.
“The county teams’ projects will help us lessen the effects of and adapt to the changes in climate that we’re already seeing, as well as to some of the local changes we are facing as the result of the pandemic,” said Mary Anne Carletta, Wayne County representative of the Earth to Sky Program. “Having access to the latest science via the Earth to Sky Partnership gives us a boost in planning for the future of our home.”
