Climate Change

Climate change activities and resources

Many ORCTU members are concerned about climate change, including the potential impact on coldwater fisheries. Significant warming in the southeast could directly impact the survival of temperature sensitive species such as the Eastern Brook Trout. ORCTU Climate Change Committee members are working on climate change research, outreach and mitigation projects, including our stream temperature monitoring project launched in 2014. This section of the ORCTU site contains CC related information and resources. For more information on the ORCTU Climate Change committee and the Climate Change Coalition contact Rich Rusk, richrusk7@gmail.com. For more information on the stream temperature monitoring project contact Danny Jackson, dj72361@gmail.com.
