Spring 2013 Networking

Thank you for joining us at the Prairie Wetland Partnership networking event!

Thursday, May 9, 4:30-6:00pm
Institute on the Environment Commons
University of Minnesota - Saint Paul

Results from the meeting. iClickers were used to gauge attendees opinions of the best way to harness the UMN's work on prairies and wetlands. Please note: (1) There were between 25 and 29 responses to each question, (2) the bar graph colors are not meaningful, and (3) the scale of the y-axes are not equal throughout.

The statewide plan referenced above is the Minnesota Prairie Conservation Plan. Attendees overwhelmingly supported a cooperation of some kind with the Conservation Plan. 

Please email pwpMN@umn.edu to get involved in this core group!
