Description: 

The effects of climate change and hydroelectric (e.g. dams) management contribute to a complex human footprint in the North Cascades National Park, an otherwise largely natural ecosystem. NCASC scientist Madeleine Rubenstein and National Park Service partners accounted for the impacts of climate change on bald eagles, salmon, and flood events, so that park managers and the operators of the hydroelectric system can more effectively ensure the resilience of the eagle–salmon relationship along the Skagit River.
