Adapting to Change

Nick Miller, lead scientist for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Wisconsin, will discuss what TNC is doing internationally, nationally, and in our state to address and adapt to the impacts of climate change at 7 pm on Dec. 3, at Bjِrklunden in Baileys Harbor. The Climate Change Coalition of Door County is sponsoring the presentation, which is open to the public.

Miller will be joined by Mike Grimm, TNC Conservation Ecologist, in discussing how climate change is affecting Door County and what TNC is doing in the face of this challenge.

Miller has served as director of science for The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin for the last nine and half years. In addition to studying a variety of issues affecting Wisconsin’s landscape, he has also worked in Chile forging a partnership between TNC scientists and researchers at the Southern University of Chile around forest restoration in the Valdivian Coastal Range, one of the most biologically rich regions in the Andes. Before joining TNC, Miller served as the manager of the Metropolitan Conservation Alliance for the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Grimm has been based in Sturgeon Bay working for The Nature Conservancy for more than 20 years. He has been instrumental in preserving and maintaining many of Door County’s lands, including the Mink River Estuary, Shivering Sands and the North Bay preserve. Grimm also brings science-based strategies to bear on the health of the lands and waters of the Green Bay Basin.
