Tribal VISTA: Fort Peck Community College. Accepting Applications from  04/25/2017 to 10/27/2018. The Great Plains Region and the Prairie Pothole Region face many climate change vulnerabilities. According to the EPA, changes in water availability will make agriculture irrigation more difficult and can threaten important wetland habitats. Moreover, warmer winters will effect seasonal growing cycles, which also impact the timing of tribal rituals and the sustainability of culturally important plants and animals. While the Fort Peck Office of Environmental Protection is aware of these vulnerabilities, the majority of their work focuses on monitoring and regulatory activities. The VISTA’s role would help bring the capacity to develop the community based programming to combat the negative effects of climate change. The VISTA’s strategic placement based in Fort Peck Community College would allow them to be more accessible to the people in the community. The educational programming the VISTA develops will address climate vulnerabilities by increasing community interest and increasing community awareness of the issues.
