June, July & August meetings are held jointly with the
Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis.

Sam Potter
Climate Change in Minnesota


Climate change is a global problem with impacts unique to every spot on Earth. Dr. Sam Potter will discuss the “big picture” of global climate change, projected impacts for Minnesota and what meaningful climate action looks like. Sam, a climate scientist currently living in the Minneapolis with his wife, Caitlin, grew up in West Central Minnesota and attended the U of M, Morris. He learned about climate change science from researchers at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, where he received a doctorate in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, and did postdoctoral research at the University of Washington.

Mike Schrage, Wildlife Biologist with the Fond du Lac Resource Management Division

Omashkooz: Returning a Native


Omashkooz is the Ojibwe word for elk. Mike will talk about the efforts of the Fond du Lac Band, the University of Minnesota and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to investigate the feasibility of restoring elk to parts of northeast Minnesota. He’ll talk about the history and ecology of elk in the eastern United States and the process for restoring elk to northeast Minnesota. In addition, he’ll talk briefly on the moose situation in northeast Minnesota; what we know and what’s likely needed in order to recover moose numbers.





Thank you to local photographer Marlene Sternberger who has given us permission to post some of her wildlife photographs. All of them were taken in the Coon Rapids Dam area in Brooklyn Park.
