Saturday Forum, DFL Ely Office

What:           Saturday Forum

When:           Saturday, October 30, 2021, 1-2 pm

Where:         Ely DFL Office, 1311 East Sheridan St.

Please join us for this conversation about our relationship with the land.

Bill Tefft, retired Vermilion Community College instructor, will lead a discussion on “Our Personal Role in Maintaining Biodiversity on Northern Minnesota Private and Public Lands,” at the Ely DFL Office, 1311 East Sheridan Street, on Saturday, October 30, from 1-2 pm.

The event will be interactive, with Tefft facilitating dialogue among participants about the environment in which we live and how we think about the natural resources that add to our quality of life.

Tefft taught biology and parks and recreation at VCC for 33 years and has spent 45 years exploring the lands of Northeastern Minnesota.

“I have worked for and known public and private owners of those lands,” said Tefft, “the lands you and I own as individuals and the lands we own collectively.”

“This land is your land, and I want to hear your ideas about it,” he said.

This week’s discussion is the first in a series of Saturday forums the Ely DFL office will be hosting to explore elements of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party platform. The platform represents the values and legislative priorities of the members of the DFL.

Tefft’s discussion addresses the platform plank that states: “We believe in leaving the world in better condition than we found it through preservation of biodiversity and wilderness.”

Please wear a mask.
