The Western Mountain Initiative unites U.S. Geological Survey, Forest Service, National Park Service and university researchers to help project climate change vulnerabilities and adaptation solutions for mountain resources of the American West. 

At their September 21 - 22 annual meeting in Glacier National Park, WMI scientists were joined by representatives of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (including Dr. Rick Sojda of the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center), as well as the interim directors of the North Central and Southwest Climate Science Centers (Drs. Jay Hestbeck and Dave Busch, respectively) who provided briefings on CSC and LCC activities and explored future opportunities with WMI.
