First of Three Climate Talk Lectures to Take Place in Grand Marais, Minn.

"Climate Change Impacts on Northern Forest Ecosystems," the first of three climate change talks, will take place at the Harbor House Grille in Grand Marais on Thursday, May 23rd from 7:30-8:30 PM. The talk will be focused on the observed and projected impacts of climate change on forests along the North Shore of Lake Superior. It will be led by Stephen Handler, a Climate Change Specialist with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and the U.S. Forest Service Northern Research Station.

Handler helps coordinate the Northwoods Climate Change Response Framework, a collaborative effort designed to help forest managers, researchers, and landowners incorporate climate change considerations into forest management.

"This speaker series presents a great opportunity for people to gather in an informal setting to share thoughts about climate change and discuss impacts and opportunities for Minnesota communities," said Hilarie Sorensen, Climate Change Extension Educator at Minnesota Sea Grant.

The hour-long presentation will include food and refreshments available for purchase.

For more information on the lecture series, contact Hilarie Sorensen by phone at (218)726-7677 or by email at soren360@d.umn.edu.
