SRECA drew over 100 participants from 12 Southeastern states to Athens in early September. The event was hosted by Southeast Climate Extension, PINEMAP, and Animal Agriculture & Climate Change. The SRECA program was first initiated in August 2013, when the Extension leadership in the Southern region asked the coordinators from these three USDA/NIFA-funded regional climate projects to coordinate a regional professional development program. SRECA was designed to help Extension professionals who bring a variety of perspectives on climate change become leaders and facilitators in their state for appropriate and relevant programming in climate variability and change. At the Academy, individuals worked in sector groups to brainstorm, ask questions, learn about resources and programs related to climate, and report past experiences with climate programs.
