Green Visions: Protecting Duluth's Natural Spaces

The city of Duluth is not only surrounded by green space, but the city itself is a model of blending urban and natural environments. In addition to tree-lined streets, nearly every Duluthian can find themselves in a park space within a few minutes from their homes. But not all natural spaces used by the public are city owned; some of the open spaces that many assume are city park spaces are actually "tax-forfeit" lands.

We speak with Julie O'Leary of the League of Women Voters Duluth about the "It's Not Easy Being Green" Earth Week forum presented jointly by the League of Women Voters of Duluth and the McCabe Chapter of the Izaak Walton League. The public event is virtual and is happening this evening from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. via Zoom. The panel will discuss efforts by the City of Duluth and St. Louis County to preserve and protect open space in Duluth, and will include speakers from the City of Duluth, St. Louis County, the Minnesota Land Trust, and the Duluth Natural Resources Commission.
