Webinar Series
The Climate Change in America's National Parks webinar series is presented by the NPS Climate Change Response Program. The purpose of the series is to connect NPS employees, volunteers, and partners with scientists and experts in the field of climate change research. The webinar series is a Service-wide forum where researchers can share credible, up-to-date information and research materials about the impacts of changing climate in national parks and provide participants the opportunity to engage with them in discussion. If you would like to be added to the webinar mailing list you can email us.

The Climate Change Response Program newsletter is currently released quarterly; an archive going back to 2009 is available on the Useful Resources page outside of the toolkit. This newsletter typically highlights new climate change research occurring in national parks, as well as new climate interpretation products and examples of climate adaptation and mitigation. You can sign up to the newsletter if you e-mail us.
Other web sites
There are a number of third-party websites that contain good information related to climate change. The RealClimate blog has commentary by climate scientists on current stories and Skeptical Science provides answers to common climate change myths. Climate Interpreter is a community of science education practicioners featuring resources and training about climate change.
