Winter Webinar: Climate threats to outdoor recreation


Tuesday, March 19

Many popular winter recreational activities this year have been forced to cancel or change course due to unprecedented warm temperatures and lack of snow. In January, temperatures dipped enough for Lake Nokomis to freeze just days before the opening weekend of the US Pond Hockey Championship, but above average temperatures led organizers to cancel the second weekend of the event. And last fall, organizers of the Twin Cities Marathon also made the difficult decision to call off the race as temperatures rose high enough to threaten runners’ health. Join us for a conversation with leaders in outdoor recreation across our region — including organizers of Wisconsin’s Birkie ski race — about how these events can plan for and adapt to climate change, and how we can embrace equitable action in climate adaptation. 

This webinar is co-hosted with the University of Minnesota Tourism Center.
