For Immediate Release

EPA to Co-sponsor Climate Change Workshop at Minnesota Valley
Wildlife Refuge

CHICAGO (June 19, 2002) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Region 5 will co-sponsor "Climate Change and Terrestrial
Ecosystems of the Great Lakes Region: The Potential Impacts and
What We Can Do," a one-day workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
June 21 at the Minnesota Valley Wildlife Refuge, 3815 E. 80th
St., Bloomington, Minn.

The workshop is the fourth of five regional workshops planned
by EPA, Michigan State University, National Wildlife Federation
and the Great Lakes Regional Climate Change Assessment Team to
engage people in addressing climate change issues.  Minnesota
Pollution Control Agency will also co-sponsor this workshop.

Speakers will address challenges facing foresters, park
managers, timber industry leaders, hunters, and waterfowl and
wetland conservation organizations.  Panel discussions will
provide a forum for stakeholders to discuss the potential
effects of climate change as well as appropriate response
strategies and policy options.

The first climate change workshop, on Great Lakes water levels,
was held in Chicago in March 2001; the second, on Great Lakes
water ecology, was held in Milwaukee in June 2001; and the
third, on agriculture in the Great Lakes Region, was held in
East Lansing, Mich., in March 2002.

Additional information about the fourth workshop, including how
to register can be obtained at www.geo.msu.edu/glra.
