Stakeholder Advisory Committee

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) includes representatives of state, federal and tribal resource management agencies located in the Northwest. The Committee meets regularly to help identify science needs and priorities to ensure that NW CASC-funded science is ultimately useful, relevant, and of value to regional management of cultural and natural resources. Members are nominated by their respective agencies or tribes. Established Terms of Reference guide the Committee’s operations.
