Other Campaigns in the Crown

In addition to our place-based work we are also working to understand how climate change is affecting the Crown of the Continent.

The more we know, the better we can help the Crown—and other places--become more resilient in the future.

The Crown of the Continent is a natural laboratory for scientists to study climate change. This is because the region’s natural diversity makes it more resilient to climate change impacts. Currently, we are working to understand the bigger picture changes taking place in the Crown over time.
