Abstract:
Whales are known as koholā in Hawaiian and have long had a place in the Hawaiian culture. The Kumulipo creation chant speaks about the birth of the whale, “Hanau ka Palaoa noho i kai” (born is the whale living in the sea). The koholā was believed to be a manifestation of Kanaloa, the god of the ocean, and is said to be responsible in helping the Polynesians discover the Hawaiian Islands. Join Solomon Pili Kahoʻohalahala as he shares that whales are also revered as ‘aumakua (spiritual protector) to specific families and were generally viewed as divine beings.

This presentation is in celebration of November, which is Hoʻi Koholā (Return of Humpback Whale Month).More information on the National Marine Sanctuaries Webinar Series:

Abstract:
Examination of fish communities typically involves creating spatiotemporally-explicit relative abundance distribution maps using data derived from multiple fishery-independent surveys. However, survey sampling performance varies by vessel and sampling gear, which may influence estimated species distribution patterns. A framework for combining fisheries surveys to examine at distribution on a multi-regional scale in this casethe entire North East Atlantic region will be presented. This analysis was two-fold; simulation studies were used to explore the effects of simulated differences in gear efficiency and then this methodology was applied to fisheries survey data, while appropriately capturing the effects of using multiple vessels and gears to collect the information.

Abstract:
In recent years, new exploration technologies and techniques have revealed an abundance of hydrocarbon seeps along continental margins worldwide. With the increasing industrialization of the deep sea resulting from the development of the blue economy, the study and management of these ecosystems has become of paramount importance. In this seminar, we will review the methods used to discover locations of active oil and gas release from the seafloor and sample the communities associated with them in order to understand the relationships between the seeps and the surrounding deep ocean. We will then discuss how to apply this knowledge to the effective and sustainable management of these systems, with a focus on offshore energy development.

Abstract:
Salmon in the Central Valley face many stressors, including a harshclimate, hydroregulation, habitat degradation, and fishing. The first partof this talk will discuss the evolution of climate forcing on the fishery'sperformance across 170 years of ecological simplification. In brief, thecontemporary fishery appears to reflect a shifted baseline whereby temperature effectsare severe and the fishery does not diffuse impacts of poor climate years inthe watershed across multiple fishing years. This lost climateresilience co-evolved with human legacy effects that concentrated thefishery's climate risk into a predominant salmon life history type. The secondpart will discuss integrative effects of flow, spawners, and the landscape onhabitat use by natural origin fry, highlighting the potentialinterdependence of water, fisheries, and habitat restoration managementarenas in actualizing effects of habitat restoration. Overall, there appears tobe potential to improve the natural productivity of the system. And, for fry toinhabit much of the landscape, including restoration sites, will likely requireintermediate or higher levels of flow and escapement.

Abstract:
Addressing the global nature of marine pollution needs tools to monitor and measure its extent in the ocean. With Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 target 14.1, the United Nations established a charge for countries to "by 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution". While In-situ measures of nutrient pollution would provide high-resolution data, not all countries have the capacity to provide this information. To address this gap, GEO Blue Planet, Esri and the UN Environment Programme have developed the methodology to report on SDG 14.1.1a - Index of Coastal Eutrophication. This collaboration includes the production of statistics for the global indicators for eutrophication so the data can be included in the 2021 SDG Progress report. Additionally, this collaboration is developing application dashboards on satellite-derived chlorophyll-a for countries to assist with the identification of potential eutrophication hot spots.

Remote Access:
Must register at https://drexel.zoom.us/webinar/register/1415905103950/WN_fBF2Bk7YRhabkkmwptflEg
Be advised: This meeting uses Zoom, but will be recorded. See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

Abstract:
Sustainable development planning in today's blue economy relies on spatial explicit information and dynamic ocean management to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services (nature's contribution to people). However, when working in developing countries or at local scales these data are often inaccessible, of low quality, or dispersed among multiple sources. Here, we discuss a review of international policies to protect marine mammals and the development of a GIS-based risk assessment tool, with the unifying goal of making better use of available data and reducing fisheries bycatch, the unintended capture of non-target species. We evaluated the historical success of cetacean conservation policies in North American and European waters and designed a cohesive spatial management framework for bycatch risk assessment in two Southeast Asian nations likely to be impacted by a new seafood import rule for compliance with provisions of the US Marine Mammal Protection Act. Key elements of existing policies and agreements were analyzed with respect to management actions for monitoring and mitigating cetacean bycatch, including time and area closures, acoustic alarms (“pingers”), fishery observers, and remote electronic monitoring. It was noteworthy that, while a precautionary principle can be aspirationally better, policy implementation (i.e. compliance and enforcement) was often less water-tight compared to a more reactionary approach, which had its own set of ecological and social challenges. Putting these insights about enabling and limiting conditions into practice, we leveraged existing data on animal distributions, fisheries effort, and estimates of interaction rates by combining expert knowledge and spatial analyses to visualize and characterize bycatch risk at local scales. By identifying areas of bycatch concern while accounting for data uncertainty, we demonstrate the importance of integrating available geospatial data in an accessible format that taps into local knowledge and can be corroborated by and communicated to stakeholders of data-limited fisheries. Our methodological approach aims to meet a critical need of fisheries managers: to identify emergent interaction patterns between fishing gears and marine mammals and support the development of management actions that can lead to sustainable fisheries and mitigate bycatch risk for species of conservation concern.

Terri Adams-Fuller, Howard University, Professor; Jayson Kratoville, University @ Albany, Director of the National Center for Security & Preparedness

Abstract:
As the science and technology used to forecast severe weather advances, so should the decision-making for severe weather incidents. Howard University and the University at Albany, in partnership with government institutions in the U.S. and Taiwan, are exploring how emergency managers make decisions using risk-based presentations of forecast models. Based on the findings, the team is building a scenario-driven Severe Weather and Risk Management training course for emergency managers. This dynamic connection between research and training will be applicable to emerging techniques like artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Key Words: Severe Weather, Emergency Management Decision-Making, Risk Management

Abstract:
This seminar will discuss the preliminary analysis of results from the NOAA 2020 Spatial Priorities Study. The Spatial Priorities Study was conducted across NOAA offices and programs to gather information about where different offices have mapping priorities. This study allows users to indicate for their programs which regions of ocean (nearshore and offshore) and Great Lakes have the most mapping needs in near or longer term. When aggregated, the results can help us allocate resources efficiently, provide a means to reach out to other partners for coordination, and leverage funding assistance where there is a shared mapping need between organizations, among other benefits. Participants entered office mapping priorities in the spring and summer of 2020 with an easy-to-use online tool developed by NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS). Building from other studies using the NCCOS tool, these results were combined and analyzed using geospatial tools to identify areas of greatest mapping priority, areas of overlapping requirements, and justifications for why mapping data is needed. The results include offices that submitted priorities through October of 2020; other NOAA offices will be incorporated as they finalize their submissions.The study is now rolling out to other federal agencies in the Interagency Working Group for Ocean and Coastal Mapping as a milestone activity under the National Ocean Mapping, Exploration and Characterization Strategy (NOMEC). In the coming months, it will expand to non-federal partners such as local governments and private sector stakeholders, in order to increase non-federal engagement on mapping coordination, also a NOMEC goal.

Abstract:
Chances are you've been asked, or are at least curious about, your program's economic benefits. Do you have an economist on staff to answer these questions? If you're like most of the 34 state Sea Grant programs, the answer is likely no. Since 2017, the National Sea Grant College Program, Sea Grant, has engaged in a deliberate strategy to enhance the capacity of its non-economists to perform basic valuations that support their program's economic stories and meet NOAA's performance measure requirements. Over the last three years, the National Sea Grant Office has worked under contract with economists at ERG and in coordination with the state Sea Grant programs to produce 11 economic valuation resources for non-economists. To promote the adoption and implementation of these tools, Sea Grant has coupled these products with community support strategies that enhance their use. The initial results are promising, with an increasing number of state programs reporting their economic benefits to the national office over the same time period. This presentation will outline Sea Grant's end-user driven approach and practical strategy for increasing its internal capacity for economic valuation and provide insights (and caveats) for others with an interest in doing the same within their programs. Sea Grant is a national network made up of 34 university-based programs established by Congress to “enhance the practical use and conservation of coastal, marine and Great Lakes resources to create a sustainable economy and environment”.

Bio(s):
Margaret Chory is a 2020 John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellow in NOAA's National Sea Grant Office where she serves as the program's socioeconomic specialist. In this role, she has supported the contract to create new valuation resources and worked to build economic valuation capacity throughout the Sea Grant network. Prior to Sea Grant, Margaret earned a Masters in Coastal Environmental Management from the Duke Nicholas School of the Environment where her research focused on the values associated with ‘fishing for food' in coastal North Carolina, and the benefits that fishers derive from access to public fishing infrastructure.

Alison Krepp leads the social science and economics portfolios for the National Sea Grant Office and serves as the program officer to the Maine, New Hampshire, MIT, Woods Hole, and Rhode Island Sea Grant programs. Prior to joining Sea Grant, Alison worked with NOAA's National Estuarine Research Reserve System where her roles included national strategic planning lead, social scientist, and regional coordinator to the northeast research reserves. Alison also worked as a planner with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources where she focused on community engagement in river conservation. Alison holds a master's degree in resource policy and behavior from the University of Michigan. Her research examined the influences of organizational behavior on sustaining partner involvement in network initiatives.

Abstract:
An overview and comparison of changing marine environments in Puget Sound and the Bering Sea. Warming waters and anthropogenic contributions have led to increasing incidences of coastal hypoxia world wide, as well as, early sea ice retreat observed in the Arctic. Copepods are an important tropic link between marine primary production and upper trophic levels, and how they respond to climate change will greatly affect the future of our oceans. This research seeks to contribute to implications that hypoxia causes a disruption to copepods diel-vertical migration patterns and early sea ice retreat is prompting a shift in bloom timing relative to zooplankton abundance on the Eastern Bering Sea Shelf.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

Abstract:
NOAA recognizes the deterioration of global coral reef ecosystems and is committed to intervening in US reefs where it has the authority to act and support, and to promote the restoration and intervention of reefs worldwide. NOAA recently commissioned the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) to review coral interventions. The reviews helped NOAA to develop this high-level plan of action which will guide how the agency approaches coral interventions in the next one to five years.

Bio(s):
Tali has been leading the NOAA/National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Office of Science & Technology (ST) on coral science since 2013. She earned her PhD at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2011 and was a Knauss Fellow (also in NMFS ST) in 2012. She has been working remotely in Brooklyn, New York for the past five years and welcomes the rest of the world to remote work.

Shavonne Smith, Director at Shinnecock Environmental Department
Heidi Kunka, Energy Program Specialist, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental ProtectionSeminar sponsor: Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN), a NOAA RISA Team

Remote Access:
Must register at https://drexel.zoom.us/webinar/register/1415905103950/WN_fBF2Bk7YRhabkkmwptflEg
Be advised: This meeting uses Zoom, but will be recorded. See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.

See info below.Recording: All sessions are recorded and archived on the CCRUN website http://www.ccrun.org/resources/seminars/Abstract: Taking action on climate has many forms, and this seminar will explore approaches to address climate change at two different scales and geographies.

From the east end of Long Island, Shavonne Smith will present on how the Shinnecock Indian Nation has been preparing for climate change by evaluating their environmental risks and conducting a climate vulnerability assessment in partnership with the Peconic Estuary Program. The Shinnecock Indian Nation territory is 800 acres of ancestral land, with 500 tribal members living on the reservation. Residing at sea level, the Shinnecock Indian Nation is vulnerable to coastal storms and flooding, as experienced during Hurricane Sandy. Sea level rise and coastal erosion are posing immediate threats to the Nation Lands, already encroaching on the tribal burial grounds near the shoreline. Shavonne will discuss some of the measures the Shinnecock Indian Nation is taking on to address these and other environmental risks caused by climate change.

Heidi Kunka from PA Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office will take a statewide lens and provide an overview of the 2018 Pennsylvania Climate Action Plan, including recommended greenhouse gas reduction strategies and actions, as well as PA's most recent annual greenhouse gas inventory and climate impacts assessment. She will share how the PA government is leading by example via the creation of a GreenGov Council, as well as how it is supporting local governments in doing the same via a local climate action program DEP is currently funding. The program utilizes a contractor to train college students on developing greenhouse gas inventories & climate action plans for local governments in Pennsylvania. Two students who participated in this program, Eric Raabe and Madeleine Pelchat, will then share their experiences and lessons learned.
