Norway House's Minnesota Peace Initiative (MPI) presents a free, open-to-the-public program, "Climate Change Comes Home!" Our speakers bring environmental and economical expertise to this discussion, and will focus on the effects of climate change within our region. With the belief that a well-informed public is critical to a healthier environment, MPI hopes this forum will provide an opportunity for thoughtful discussion of climate change in Minnesota.
