W.J. McCabe Chapter

Energy in the Northland: Beyond Coal to Clean Energy

We have a unique event lined up for our next chapter meeting! Natalie Cook and James Hietala, from the Sierra Club Energy Team, will tell us about the status of energy in Minnesota with an emphasis on the Duluth region. We will learn about how the energy landscape has changed in the last decade, what our current energy mix is for electrical usage, and what opportunities are coming to bring more clean renewable energy onto the grid.

This will be a great opportunity to get updated on the latest happenings. During the program you will also hear about our Sustainability Committee and the work they are doing to keep us aware of how as members of the Izaak Walton League we can live in a more local and sustainable way that helps to protect the environment.

The program is Wednesday, October 7, 7pm at theĀ Hartley Nature Center. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Rich Staffon at 218-879-3186.
