$2500 Minigrants Offered to the ETS Community by the NASA Global Precipitation Mission (GPM)

This archived Blackboard Collaborate session provides information about this great funding opportunity and excellent examples of how last year's recipients used the funding to create Climate Change Interp/Education products and programs.

Mini-grant proposals are due COB June 13, 2014!

DorianThis session features NASA Global Precipitation Mission Education and Outreach lead, Dorian Janney, who describes this great opportunity for you to propose for funding your climate change project. Dorian outlines the requirements for the short proposal, including deadlines and funding levels. 

ETS Alumni Leah Eskelin (Kenai NWR) , Susan Sachs (Great Smoky Mountains NP) and Tim Taglauer (Shenandoah NP), who received grants last year  describe the projects they have been working on or completed. These projects are wonderful examples of work within our community that any of us can draw from for ideas, best practices and lessons learned, even if you are not seeking funding.

The Third National Climate Assessment (NCA) Released

The NCA is the official US Federal Government report on climate for our nation, mandated by the Global Change Research Act of 1990, and vetted by 13 Federal Departments and Agencies and the Executive Office of the President. The assessment is an ongoing compilation of the state of knowledge about climate change for the United States. A written report is produced every four years, and this is the third such report.

Watch the archive of the White House event marking the release of the report, at 2 PM ET.
