Karuk Tribe Unveils Climate Adaptation Plan

The land was once used differently in Northern California.  Both the people and the climate were different.  Now there is heavy fire suppression, and longer, drier fire seasons. 

The Karuk Tribe drew up plans to approach environmental management on its traditional lands in an age of climate change.  The Climate Adaptation Plan involves relationships between the Karuk and many agencies and organizations.  Bill Tripp from the Karuk Department of Natural Resources and Kari Norgaard of the University of Oregon, who co-authored the plan, visit with details.
