Emergent awareness of the ecological consequences of climate change has created an urgent need to re-examine and refine approaches to the conservation of natural resources. Through the Climate Change Adaptation Project, Manomet scientists have developed climate change adaptation plans for eight landowner and landscape scale sites in Maine and Massachusetts. The plans were developed with funding from the Kresge Foundation over the course of three years. The project is intended to provide insight on approaches to climate change adaptation that maximize ecosystem resiliency. Manomet is continuing to build on this approach to respond to climate change and is expanding to a national scale through the development of the Climate Smart Land Registry.
