Minnesota Sentinel Lakes Program

The Section of Fisheries of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is leading a statewide collaborative effort to develop a system to monitor and record biological and chemical changes that occur in a sample of lakes that are representative of the state’s most common lakes. The program is designed to understand and predict the consequences of land use and climate change on lake habitats. This research builds off of the Sustaining Lakes in a Changing Environment program, or SLICE, that began in 2008.

Best Practices for State Wildlife Action Plans - Voluntary Guidance to States for Revision and Implementation

November 2012

In 2005, Congress mandated that state fish and wildlife agencies develop State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs) that identified the species and habitats in greatest conservation need, key threats, and recommended actions - in order to receive federal funding through the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants Program. The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies prepared a report with guidance focused on integrating climate change adaptation planning into SWAPs in 2009 - Voluntary Guidance for States to Incorporate Climate Change into State Wildlife Action Plans and Other Management Plans.
