Wetlands

The Montana Climate Office is hoping to contribute to the Montana Wetland Council's strategic objectives regarding climate as stated in their Strategic Framework for 2013-2107 on Page 19:

  • Objective 5C: Compile and synthesize existing science-based information on the anticipated effects of climate change on Montana’s wetlands and riparian resources. Publish and disseminate this information widely.
  • Objective 5D: Identify practical options for minimizing the adverse impacts of climate change on Montana’s wetland and riparian ecosystems, including, but not limited to, the reduction of current anthropogenic stresses, best management strategies to preserve wetland hydrology and floodplain functions, and mitigation and policy options. Publish and disseminate this work widely.
