Panel Addresses Climate Change on Wisconsin Life and Culture

Whether it’s fruit from our orchards, winter recreation, water quality, wildlife habitat or traditions we cherish, aspects of life in Wisconsin are changing along with the climate. These changes will profoundly influence the way we live and do business here in Wisconsin.

Patty Loew, author and former co-host of In Wisconsin, moderates a discussion with three panelists who provide perspective on how climate change is changing Wisconsin life and culture. The discussion takes place at 7 pm on Nov. 12, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art lecture hall in Madison. Panelists include: Michelle Miller, associate director, Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, UW–Madison; Jim St. Arnold, program director/traditional ecological knowledge coordinator, Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission; and Stanley Temple, Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation, UW–Madison, and Senior Fellow, Aldo Leopold Foundation.
