In order to support local restaurants during the pandemic, Do Good Roseville is following the lead of a group in Woodbury. Like Woodbury, to show our local restaurants how important they are to us, we are taking a page from “It’s a Wonderful Life” and hosting “It’s a Wonderful Line”. Each week we will choose a different local restaurant, and on a set date and time, we will ask you to “form a line” for takeout from the restaurant.
 
This week we are enjoying great traditional Middle Eastern fare plus Pakistani and American dishes from the Original Mediterranean Grill !

Take-out order call: 651-255-7827 or walk-in

Forests in Minnesota have dramatically different futures depending on the CO2 emissions scenario that we follow as a society. For the business as usual scenario, the state would lose all of the boreal forest (cold climate conifer and birch forests of northern MN), and much of the state would support prairies rather than forests by 2070. For a low emissions scenario forests would experience much smaller changes, with some boreal forest remaining in the north.

Presenter: Lee Frelich is Director of the University of Minnesota Center for Forest Ecology. He has over 180 publications with 265 coauthors from 23 countries, and has appeared in the news media over 500 times, including the New York Times and Washington Post. Current research interests include impacts of fire and wind disturbances, invasive earthworms, and climate change in forests.
