  • Nicole's Climate Story


    view from cabinMy climate epiphany came through my work with the Will Steger Foundation.  I was aware of the climate change issue, but I didn’t understand how urgent, how interconnected and how important it was until I was literally enveloped by it. But I was also extremely fascinated and drawn to it and chose to dig in deeply. It began with hearing Will’s powerful eyewitness story. Knowing that EVERY ice shelf he has crossed has disintegrated – and what it took to cross these vast ice shelves that disappeared in weeks and minutes – and that none of his expedition accomplishments could ever be repeated caused me to look at what places I’ve traveled, been, seen or love or feel intimately familiar with – how are these places changed. It brought me back to Ely, to Burntside Lake, to the Boundary Waters.

  • Katie's Climate Story

    Katie's Climate StoryEveryone has places they go to become refreshed, to rejuvenate their spirit and renew their sense of purpose – maybe a walk in the woods or a trip home. For me it's my grandparents' house, which my family inherited several years ago and where we spend our summers, Christmases, and any other time we get a chance. No matter the season, our time is most often spent outdoors, on walks to the Cove, bike rides to High Hill Point, or gardening projects. Trips up there have a timeless feel: the house is more or less unchanged since my grandparents lived in it, and the days' rhythms are consistent across the years. As each visit nears its end I feel more ready than ever to re-enter the world and live more fully.
