'The Future of Food in Muskegon County'

West Michigan Environmental Action Council and the Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club are starting Community Conversations on Climate Change, a series of virtual discussions on climate change – how it is affecting Muskegon County, and what can be done at the local level to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for future impacts.
