The Anderson Center hosted a regional climate change solutions conference on Saturday October 4 in collaboration with the Will Steger Foundation, Fresh Energy, MN Interfaith Power and Light, and several local partners.

On October 2nd, Will Steger will join Governor Dayton, Jeff Hamiel, executive director/CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, George P.
