The Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon (CTWS) strives to maintain ecological diversity and integrity, while sustaining cultural practices, preserving and improving economic development and promoting higher education opportunities to tribal members.FY2015and FY2016 Objectives:This project seeks to better address climate change and community stewardship through professional development opportunities for tribal members to produce better community engagement and tribal leadership in the Climate Change Working Group and national and regional climate change policy decisions.CCWG delegates will attend relevant tribal, regional and national conferences, trainings and policy forums to increase...

The White House Council for Environmental Quality has identified two national watersheds to pilot large-scale drought resiliency implementation. The Missouri Headwaters Basin within the GNLCC region and High Divide landscape is one of these national demonstration areas, and the GNLCC can advance its collective mission with this opportunity. By delivering science to management and building a learning network among watershed groups, this project will align the large-scale watershed management efforts of the GNLCC with the National Drought Resiliency Program (NDRP) and the Montana Department of Natural Resources (DNRC) to build drought resilience into this important northern Rocky Mountain landscape.FY2015and FY2016The...

The project will establish contact with interested parties in each tribe or first nation within the Crown of the Continent to collect information on all relevant activities and research regarding climate and adaptive management within each tribal nation. We will coordinate a meeting of all interested tribal contacts and coordinate tribal activities with other efforts in the Crown including the Crown Managers Partnership, the Crown of the Continent Conservation Initiative, and the Crown Roundtable Adaptive Management Initiative.Objectives:Establish a contact on climate adaptation management in each interested first nation/tribe or related organization in the Crown of the Continent.Develop a white paper that summarizes...

The Stoney Nakoda Nation believe that it is important to provide cultural awareness to the Great North Landscape Conservation group so that the group can understand the First Nation history of the study area. This is particularly interesting given the early policy development of national parks within the United States of America, and Canada, and the impacts on the Stoney Nakoda.The cultural awareness and First Nation history of the Stoney Nakoda will provide background on traditional uses and knowledge of the study area, and provide insight to science based practitioners on the need for integrating western science with traditional environmental knowledge.To provide First Nation cultural awareness of the Rocky Mountain...

Colville Tribes Fish and Wildlife scientists will participate in GNLCC meetings in FY2014, so that we can explore our mutual interests, learn about available resources for landscape level assessments, and discover opportunities to expand research and mitigation efforts in our area of the Pacific Northwest. In order to fulfill our mission of environmental stewardship, it is essential that we collaborate with groups such as the GNLCC to share collective knowledge, efficiently coordinate with neighboring habitat managers, and cooperate in regional landscape level conservation regimes. It appears there are many interests we have in common, as our objectives and our projects are consistent with all four goals outlined...

The Yakama Nation Department of Natural Resources is currently developing a department-wide Climate Adaptation Plan (CAP). YN staff will be integrating Traditional Ecological Knowledge with current science findings to better prepare their natural resource programs to address future climate conditions. Funding through this grant will facilitate sharing of key strategies between the CAP and the GNLCC Conservation Framework.FY2015and FY2016 Objectives:During the period of this contract, the Yakama Nation will focus our efforts on three primary tasks, including but not limited to:1. expand participation in, and contributing to the Columbia Basin Partner Forum;2. engage the FRMP (Fisheries Resource Management Program)...

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) will identify and implement the goals and objectives outlined in CSKT Climate Change Strategic Plan. This funding is part of a larger pool of resources to sustain and enhance the cultural, community, and conservation goals and values of the GNLCC. Through this effort the CSKT, its partners, and stakeholders will increase our understanding of regional and global climate change impacts. We will use our combined expertise and knowledge to help the people of the Flathead Nation and surrounding areas adapt and mitigate to climate impacts affecting us all.

The purpose of the proposed project is to increase the cross cultural capacity of indigenous and non-indigenous groups to collaborate on climate adaptation in the Crown of the Continent (CoC) a sub-region of the GNLCC area. In order to achieve this purpose, the objectives of this project are to conduct a pilot study 1) to identify the necessary protocols for collaboration between the Blackfeet Nation and government and non-government agencies active, and 2) to identify the priorities of the Blackfeet Nation in climate change adaptation. The outcomes of this project will include both written and presented material on the priorities of, and protocols for working with the Blackfeet Nation, including a widely distributed...

Native fish of the Columbia River Basin, and the ecosystems that support them, are an innate and critical part of Nez Perce culture. The persistence of these fisheries may be at risk due to climate change, especially in combination with other stressors (e.g., habitat fragmentation and disconnectivity). Assessing vulnerability of these fisheries to climate change, considering options for action, and taking action will require strategic collaboration and coordination with multiple partners. Here, we propose to start building those partnerships to address this landscape-level conservation concern.The overarching philosophy of Nez Perce fisheries management is to ensure that all species and populations of anadromous...

The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) has been working collaboratively with the Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service (USFS) to inventory and map current and potential distributions of plant communities which support species of cultural concern on federal lands. This project will continue this collaborative effort to develop plant community information and GIS datasets about three culturally important plant species located throughout the Columbia basin which are impacted by climate change, land use, invasive species, and increased incidence and severity of fire. We will help initiate determination of historical, current and likely future distribution and productivity in the...
