The Twin Ports Climate Coalition invites you to a Climate Conversation and luncheon

  • 11:30 to Noon - Networking (bring your own lunch)
  • Noon to 1:00 p.m. - Presentation and conversation

Join us to find out how the 1854 Treaty Authority is implementing their climate change adaptation plan. Tansey Smith, 1854 Treaty Authority climate change specialist, will discuss the implementation process that identified priorities and next steps for each adaptation action. The process is a collaborative effort among the Bois Forte, Grand Portage and Fond Du Lac Bands in the 1854 Ceded Territory. In this presentation, Smith will provide examples of how the 1854 Treaty Authority identified the next steps in implementation.

Tansey has about 18 years of experience working with tribal governments in environmental, natural and cultural resources. She has a B.A. in anthropology and a master's degree in environmental law and policy and is currently developing the climate change program for the 1854 Treaty Authority. She conducts outreach and education on climate change impacts on natural resources, develops and implements a monitoring plan to assess impacts of climate change, and expands partnership efforts with other management entities.

This Climate Conversations luncheon is hosted by the 1854 Treaty Authority, the City of Superior Environmental Services Division, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program. These efforts for the Twin Ports Climate Coalition seek to foster communication and collaboration as we adapt to climate challenges in the Twin Ports region.
