OCA helps land climate-impacts grant

A consortium led by the North Olympic Peninsula Resource Conservation and Development Council, including Olympic Climate Action in Clallam County and the Local 2020 Climate Action Group in east Jefferson County, has been awarded a $152,000 grant from the National Estuary Program’s Watershed Protection & Restoration Fund, administered by the the WA State Dept. of Ecology.  The project, pending finalization of a contract, will consult extensively with local stakeholders and scientific experts to produce a study summarizing expected climate impacts and adaptation needs for the North Olympic Peninsula, and then reach out to the public and local governments about changes to land use plans that would help to protect people and resources.
