Collaborating with communities to sustainably manage and conserve Minnesotan forest
Minnesota is one of the fastest warming states in North America. In the coming years, scientists predict the state will experience more heat-related deaths, lower crop yields and devastating floods amongst other related impacts. Indigenous Native American communities, who are strongly connected to the region's environment, have already begun to notice significant changes. As climate change continues to strengthen its grip in the coming years, the viability of many species and habitats that are vital to Tribal Nations in Minnesota will be threatened - leaving indigenous ways of life in jeopardy.
