Climate Wisconsin is an educational multimedia project featuring stories of climate change. These stories are produced to support teaching and learning about climate change in Wisconsin. Our goal is to make them accessible in a variety of formats. Stories are available with closed captioning on PBS Learning Media, a free digital media service for educational use. The Aldo Leopold Nature Center will feature stories from Climate Wisconsin in their upcoming Climate Change Classroom and Interactive Laboratory. If you would like to use resources from Climate Wisconsin in a classroom, nature center, community meeting, or other educational context, please contact us. Finn Ryan is producer, director Wisconsin Media Lab. More information here.

This multimedia video produced by the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board follows Kat Becker and Tony Shultz, third generation maple syrup producers in Athens, WI, through a day of sugaring. Kat and Tony describe the process of collecting and boiling down sap to produce maple syrup. They explore how specific weather conditions are necessary for the process and how those conditions may be impacted by climate change.
