Climate in the Parks: Innovative Climate Change Education in Parks
(Copied from the introduction with edits in brackets)
Climate in the Parks shows the ways in which parks are striving to meet this demand [by 67% of National Park and Wildlife Refuge users for more communication about climate change]. By highlighting a representative selection of examples, Climate in the Parks seeks to advance a broad movement to communicate climate change topics through parks and protected areas—to demonstrate how park interpreters, park partners, community groups, and civic leaders are communicating the links among climate dynamics, changes to natural and cultural features in parks, human well-being, and overall community health. By sharing these examples, the Institute at the Golden Gate hopes to generate opportunities for parks to improve their climate education initiatives or begin new ones.
