Located on the North Coast of Oregon, the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) is dedicated to protecting and restoring five Tillamook County estuaries and watersheds. The Geos Institute is assisting the TEP in conducting a Vulnerability Assessment to assess climate risks to Tillamook Estuaries resources, including wildlife, fisheries, forestry, and water. We will follow the process outlined in the EPA’s workbook on developing Risk-based Adaptation Plans to identify risks and prioritize them for action.
Based on the identified risks, we are developing a Climate Change Adaptation Strategy for the region.
The ClimateWise process that we will be using is highly collaborative and relies on stakeholder participation and local expertise. We welcome participants from a variety of backgrounds and areas of interest.
