EPA to Co-sponsor Climate Change Workshop at Crystal Mountain

CHICAGO (Oct. 22, 2002) -- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5
will co-sponsor "Climate Change and Winter Tourism: What are the Potential
Impacts and What We Can Do," a one-day workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. Nov. 8 at Crystal Mountain, 12500 Crystal Mountain Dr.,
Thompsonville, Mich.

The workshop is the last of five regional workshops planned by EPA,
Michigan State University, National Wildlife Federation and the Great
Lakes Regional Climate Change Assessment Team.  Their purpose is to
stimulate discussion on climate change issues, encouraging more people to
learn about current problems.

Scientists, winter sports enthusiasts and leaders from the business and
tourism communities will discuss the latest science of how projected
climate change in the region is likely to affect winter recreation and
tourism.  The group will explore ways to address the issue.

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

Additional information about the fifth workshop, including how to
register, can be obtained at http://www.geo.msu.edu/glra.   Information
about climate change is at http://www.epa.gov/globalwarming/.  For special
needs or accommodations, please contact Jeanne Bisanz at (248) 851-2316.
