Isle Royale Scenario Planning Workshop

The workshop examined how climate change may affect Isle Royale National Park’s resources, with an emphasis on the island’s forests and wolf and moose populations. Participants developed four divergent scenarios for the period 2013-2050, based on the range of projected climate change: “least change”; “summer drought, wind, and fire”; “warmer than Duluth”; and “Isle Savanna” and explored several options for resource management within each of the scenarios.
