Climate change is happening all around us – see how we can prepare our communities and wild places like forests and streams for climate change, all while improving the environment and creating jobs. Shot on location in Anne Arundel County, Md., restoration contractor Keith Underwood shows a project to manage stormwater that helps fight back against climate change and improves the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Wilderness Society is the leading American conservation organization working to protect our nation’s public lands, the 635 million acres collectively owned by the American people and managed by our government. From well-known icons to hidden gems, these lands provide us all with clean air and water; abundant wildlife; havens for recreation, learning, and solitude; and a foundation for a healthy planet. They are also important sources of renewable energy and vital natural resources that must be managed wisely.
