The goal of this project was to assist the Adirondack Park Agency in the design and implementation of a wetland monitoring program that will enable analysis of wetland responses to climate change by identifying wetlands at risk from climate change. The project developed protocols and criteria for detecting and monitoring climate change effects, develop data collection training modules for citizen science volunteers, and develop a web-based GIS database to facilitate analysis and interpretation of Adirondack wetland data.
