Bonnie was mentioned in an MPR story about preserving forests. Read or listen to the story here. Below is a short excerpt from the story:
The most important benefit of forests is “what they’re not,” said Bonnie Keeler, an environmental science professor at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
“It’s the fact that they’re not agriculture. They’re not development,” Keeler said. “It’s really what land uses are not there. That’s the biggest driver of why we still have high-quality water in evli porno most of the Mississippi headwaters region.”
The Mississippi provides drinking water for about 1.7 million Minnesotans, plus about 18 million more people living downstream, Keeler said.
