Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Indiana Dunes

August 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Indiana Dunes
Northwest Indiana Green Drinks
THURSDAY, August 16th, at 6:30 pm
Shoreline Brewery – Reserved Room | 208 Wabash St. | Michigan City, IN

The gorgeous Karner blue butterfly has become extinct in our Indiana Dunes! Climate change probably caused its source of food—wild blue Lupine—to bloom out of sync with its nourishment needs. As the seasons become unpredictable and as temperatures rise, what other native plants and species could be impacted by climate change and what can be done to help?

As you grab a delightful brew and some delicious eats, Cathy Martin, Program Manager at Save the Dunes, will discuss background on the creation of the Indiana Dunes Ecosystem Alliance (IDEA), the collection of government and non-profits that develop land management goals for the Dunes and secured funding for the Adaptation Plan. Then Katherine Powell Moore, Climate Change Ecologist of the Field Museum in Chicago, will present how climate change has affected our area and what impacts are still expected plus explain strategies outlined in the “Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Indiana Dunes” geared towards building resiliency in our regional habitats.

Northwest Indiana Green Drinks will meet Thursday, August 16th, at 6:30 pm. Green Drinks meets the 3rd Thursday of every month (except July) at Shoreline Brewery, 208 Wabash Street, in their reserved room. These events are sponsored by Save the Dunes and supported by 219 GreenConnect. Suggested donation is $5, $2 for students. For further information, please call 219-210-7513.
