The Gunnison Basin is facing significant impacts from a changing climate. The mean temperature here has risen by 1.5 degrees F over the past 50 years, with additional warming expected over the long-term. Meanwhile, the Basin has experiences significant dust loading and profound impacts on snowmelt and stream flows due to drought and seasonal shifts in precipitation.
CI provides an effective platform for solutions to these challenges, facilitating education, demonstration, and innovation in quality land management that support the overall and long-term social, economic, and environmental health of the region.
