The Myrick Hixon EcoPark, USGS, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of La Crosse have teamed up to bring the community an informed conversation about the issues and consequences of a changing climate on humans, wildlife and their environment. A lack of information or misinformation often leads to increased confusion, controversy and frustration. Credible information and open dialog leads to an informed public that guides decision makers to support sustainable economies, human health and natural resources for a better future.

Dr. Michal Jawson is the Center Director for the USGS Upper Midwest Environmental Services Center. Working with UMESC staff and research scientists, Dr. Jawson oversees the many environmental  research projects conducted by the center.
