Corrie Folsom-O'Keefe of Audubon Connecticut (right) and Suzanne Paton (left) of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service trudge through the mud in the Great Meadows Marsh in Stratford, Connecticut. The marsh is being regraded by a company specializing in marsh restoration as the federal government works with the Audubon Society to increase the marsh's resiliency.

In a year dominated by gun control debates and the midterm elections, the climate crisis has taken a back seat. But we’re seeing its impact across the country and here in Connecticut. This week, we look at the ways climate change has impacted our state, from an explosion of ticks to flooding on our shorelines.
