The Institute on the Environment (IonE) will host the Midwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC), a consortium of higher education and natural resource institutions that will seek to advance actionable science meant to address the climate crisis affecting Midwestern ecosystems. The Midwest CASC is the ninth CASC program established by U.S. Geological Survey and will work closely with federal, state, and Tribal entities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. The cooperative agreement is for five years and will include $4.5 million in operational funding. IonE is a Consortium member center; read more about the Midwest CASC on the IonE website.
