GLIFWC’s Climate Change Program
Climate change is altering our environment, shifting and disrupting plant and animal habitats and affecting how Anishinaabeg gather treaty resources. GLIFWC’s Climate Change Program is working to define the extent and severity of these changes in the Ceded Territories in order to assist its member tribes in co-managing treaty resources.

GLIFWC wants to hear about what you’ve been seeing. GLIFWC climate change staff are collecting phenological observations from around the Ceded Territories. Help us study phenology and climate change by submitting observations such as plants budding, animal sightings, unusual storms, or anything else at this link: GLIFWC Phenology Calendar Submission
New Fall PhenoCam footage. One way GLIFWC climate change staff can closely monitor phenology – without having to visit the study sites daily – is by setting up remote cameras that capture images every 30 minutes. This video shows the time-lapse footage of dagwaagin (autumn) in fast motion at GLIFWC’s phenology site in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.
