The UMN Center for Changing Landscapes and Institute on the Environment invite you to attend the Fall 2018 Climate Connections gathering to hear from key leaders and discuss the implications of climate change for the present and future Mississippi River in St. Paul. Specifically, our panel of speakers will address how current visioning, planning, development, and economic activities in the St. Paul stretch of the river may be impacted by climate change, and invite discussion on the broader challenge of planning and protecting urban water resources and adjacent landscapes in a climate-altered future.

This event is in part of the Climate Connections series and a partnership between Center for Changing Landscapes and the Institute on the Environment.

RSVP here by September 7.
