New Book Captures Beauty of Voyageurs National Park and Describes Impact of Climate Change on Minnesota's Water Resources

| Leave a comment

A new book entitled, "Voyageur Skies: Weather and Wilderness in Minnesota's National Park," chronicles the seasons in Voyageurs National Park through University of Minnesota Extension climatologist Mark Seeley's account of how weather and climate has shaped the park's pristine landscape. Retired Extension photographer Don Breneman shows the many stunning facets of the park as they appear through his own lens.

How has the climate in Voyageurs National Park changed in recent years and what does this mean going forward? Climate change is already impacting Minnesota's water resources. While celebrating the spectacular beauty to be found in Minnesota's only national park, VOYAGEUR SKIES facilitates wider discussion and understanding of implications for the future if the quality of the state's resources is to be preserved.

As an introductory offer, Extension staff will be able to purchase signed copies (by both author and photographer) of "Voyageur Skies" for $29.99 each plus S/H and tax through the Extension Store.
