The Chicago Wilderness Climate Action Plan for Nature
In 2010, Chicago Wilderness released its Climate Action Plan for Nature, a strategy to help conserve regional biodiversity in a changing climate. This report is the culmination of the efforts of a collaborative team composed of the Chicago Wilderness alliance’s 37-member Climate Change Task Force, scientific experts, and large conservation groups. The report outlines three key strategies to prepare for climate change – mitigation, adaptation, and education – and associated benchmark goals to support biodiversity in the greater Chicago Wilderness area.
