Come to this special seminar hosted by Friends of Scandia Parks and Trails, featuring a presentation by Angie Hong of the East Metro Water Resource Education Program

Learn how local watershed districts are adapting to a changing climate and what you can do to build resiliency on your own land.

Climate data shows that our Minnesota winters have become substantially warmer, especially in northern Minnesota, and heavy rainstorms that can dump 6-10 inches of rain within a 24-hour period of time are becoming more frequent. These changes can have a dramatic impact on our economy and way of life, in addition to impacting wildlife and natural resources.

During this presentation, Angie will share some of the actions local watershed districts and state agencies are taking to plan for extreme rainfall events. She will also talk about actions you can take to build resiliency on your own land, including managing woodlands for changing climate stressors and using drought tolerant species for lawns and gardens.
