Free public event on June 22 at the University of Minnesota’s Cloquet Forestry Center explores sense of place, story and climate change in Minnesota’s forests
MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (06/21/2013) —How well do we know the forest? As climate change alters the landscape and its ecology, what does the future hold for northern Minnesota’s forests?
Join researchers from the University of Minnesota for a tour of the Cloquet Forestry Center, guided trail hike, presentations on climate research and more on June 22, 2013.
Participants will have an opportunity to engage in conversations with University researchers, fellow community members, artists, historians, musicians, storytellers and educators to discuss the future of Minnesota’s forests.
This free public event is part of a project called "Conversation-E: Science + Art in Service to Sustainability" sponsored by University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment in partnership with Green Art Together Evolving (GATE) and the Cloquet Forestry Center.
