Mississippi River Forum
The Mississippi River Forum is intended to increase coordination between a multidisciplinary group of practitioners and decision-makers who are not consistently aware that related work is being done by others. The Forum is also an opportunity for practitioners to connect their work to those in different fields who also impact the quality of the river.
"Climate Change and Minnesota's Water Resources"
Friday, December 13 (Minneapolis) AND
Friday, January 24 (St. Cloud)
J. Drake Hamilton, Science Policy Director, Fresh Energy
Light breakfast provided. Free. RSVP to email@example.com
One of the greatest challenges facing our communities in the future will be how climate change impacts the natural resources on which we all rely. But what, specifically, do scientists think we will see in Minnesota as a result of climate change? How do we anticipate our water resources, and the Mississippi River, may be altered? How can we connect our concern about natural resources to tangible actions that help us avoid the worst impacts of climate change--and what are the "good news" stories that we can look to as we approach this work? Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear the insights of an internationally-recognized expert on climate issues who lives and works right here on the Mississippi River.
J. Drake Hamilton is the Science Policy Director for Fresh Energy.
