Climate, Energy, and Community: What We Can Do

Minnesota is experiencing more extreme weather events that can be a problem for city infrastructure and clean water. An increase in the amount of precipitation can increase flooding and polluted runoff. How we manage our landscapes can have major impacts on the health of our environment and community. There’s a lot we can do to make a difference.

This free program allows youth to explore Minnesota’s changing climate and home energy through interactive displays with a facilitator. It is available to school classes and youth groups grades 4–8. Thanks to a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the MWMO will be hosting this exhibit through May 2017.
