Setting a course for a sustainable landscape

2012 projects from the Southeast Climate Science Center

In case you haven't already seen them, here are the 2012 projects from the Southeast Climate Science Center. Jerry, Damian, Mindi, Adam, Jen, and all the other folks helping out with the Southeast Climate  Center did a great job including the needs of your cooperative and the southeast network of cooperatives under some very challenging restraints on the process. Thanks to everyone involved for all your hard work!
