    Audience Q&A and moderated discussion

Join us for an informal social and science — an on-tap presentation and Q&A — at Bent Paddle Brewery for natural resource, tourism and outdoor recreation professionals in the Twin Ports about how people who live and work along the North Shore are thinking about and responding to a changing climate. The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend. Support for this research was provided in part by Minnesota Sea Grant. The event is free, but the beer is not.

Karen Lutsky, MLA
Karen Lutsky is an assistant professor in the University of Minnesota, College of Design, Department of Landscape Architecture. Her current design research focuses on landscape architecture's role in the future of the parts of the Great Lakes that are close to the shore (called the littoral zone) and the potential of the lakes' emergent land to address larger environmental issues and establish healthier relationships between people and the water. Lutsky is particularly interested in how landscape architecture, a design field that has long worked with issues of change and adaptation, may help the region better celebrate and engage the dynamics of the littoral landscape in its efforts to establish a more resilient future.
