We are grateful to have our event included as part of Western Michigan University’s Climate Emergency Month, and to our hosts, the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition and the Kalamazoo Nature Center. Following our meeting, they have offered for us to take a climate-themed walk through the sugarbush, or in the event of inclement weather, tour their visitor center to see its exciting new energy conservation improvements.
Moving forward, MiCAN will rotate the content and geographical area of focus. The Community Voices Series will continue monthly (virtually) and draw diverse participants from the network to amplify local climate work, connect members and groups, and support each other's actions.
