Interior Announces Midwest Science Center

Final CASC in national network will be hosted by the University of Minnesota.

The Department of the Interior announced last week that it would be opening a new Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC) at the University of Minnesota. This is the ninth and final CASC in a national network of programs dedicated to protecting local environments and striving to better understand local ecosystems. 

Secretary Deb Haaland said of the project, “In order to address the climate crisis, we need to be guided by the best available science. Integrated collaboration with educational and natural resource organization partners ensures that federal, Tribal, and state resource managers have access to the collective wisdom of world-renowned experts. The Midwest Climate Adaptation Science Center will better position us to mitigate climate impacts while focusing needed attention to Tribal and state resources that are particularly vulnerable to climate change.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Interior Department’s CASC program to be effective in preserving God’s creation.
  • For officials in the Interior as they study and evaluate climate and the environment.
  • That Secretary Haaland would seek the Lord’s wisdom as she heads her department.
