Federally Managed Lands Two Pagers

These sea-level rise two pagers were produced for federally managed lands in the Gulf of Mexico region to aid National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, and National Estuarine Research Reserve managers in sea-level rise communication and resilience planning.

PLACE: SLR (formerly NGOM SSC) partnered with individuals at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Wetland and Aquatic Research Center and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to produce customized two-pager information sheets for federal coastal refuges, parks, and reserves across the northern Gulf of Mexico (i.e., sea-level rise sensitive federally-managed lands within Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida).
