A new report looks at the impact of climate change on National Parks including Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Changing climate in the Great Lakes region is driving native species out of national parks along the Great Lakes, according to a report published Wednesday by the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization and the National Resources Defense Council. But it might also drive out the one invasive species the parks need to survive – tourists.  Karen Hobb of the National Resources Defense Council joined Eight Forty-Eight to explain.
