If you live in Cook County and receive a letter this summer with a return address from the University of Minnesota, it’s not junk mail. It’s likely a survey focusing on climate change along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

In 2016, University of Minnesota Prof. Mae Davenport from the Department of Forest Resources, along with colleagues from many other fields, completed a study on how climate change could affect tourism on the North Shore.

Davenport spoke with WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs about the surveys being sent in July 2017 to local residents in both Cook County and Lake County.
