After 7 Years, Top NPS Staffer On Climate Change Adaptation Quits; Cites Lack Of Funding, Resources

Marcy Rockman, the first person to hold the position of Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator for Cultural Resources at NPS, resigned in early November after seven years in the position. In her role, Rockman studied the effects of climate change on archeological sites, cultural landscapes and historic buildings and looked to past cultures for guidance on how to address future climate change.

Her job was part of NPS’s Climate Change Response Program, which was created to study how to better understand the effects of climate change on NPS-owned sites and resources. In a resignation letter she shared on Twitter Thursday, Rockman claimed she routinely saw the agency struggle to offer resources to her area commensurate with its emphasis on natural resources.

“Despite the needs and potentials of cultural resources with respect to climate change across the national park system, and the leadership role the NPS holds in providing cultural resources guidance to federal, state, tribal, and local partners, over the course of my position I’ve seen the NPS repeatedly struggle to support cultural resources at levels commensurate with natural resources.”

EDIT

"My reason for leaving is a series of pressures from the NPS that required me to spend ever more time & energy fighting for the right to exist & perform basic tasks," she tweeted Thursday. "Going forward I want my creativity to go fully to climate & heritage, wherever that heritage may be."
