As we witness the impacts of climate change, investments in the Great Lakes are critical to protecting the wildlife and people who depend on this invaluable natural resource.
I recently joined Rep. Frank Mrvan on a bird walk through Lake Etta County Park with Audubon Great Lakes and the Dunes-Calumet Audubon Society. We were lucky to see a Red-headed woodpecker perched on a tree overhead. Audubon’s science tells us that this beautiful bird is at risk of extinction due to climate change, along with two-third of the birds in North America.
Thank you Congressman Mrvan for going birding with us and for supporting robust investments in the Great Lakes. I encourage you to continue this important work by co-sponsoring the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which would help the farmers and foresters who are essential to Indiana’s economy adopt climate-friendly practices and helps us all be a part of the solution.
