CURE’s climate program is rooted in the understanding that Minnesota is warming faster than the nation as a whole and that our rainfall patterns have changed. More precipitation is falling overall and more of it is falling in big storms. Climate change will have major impacts on our society, economy, and ecosystems.
Featured Project: Sharing Stories
Connecting Climate & Agriculture
Our shared goal is to amplify the stories of people who are using conservation practices that have important regenerative potential while reducing the impacts on climate change.

These practices improve soil health and water quality — and grow deep connections to the land and those who came before them. These are stories from practitioners, people with their boots on the ground, soil under their fingernails. Together, these storytellers are from different backgrounds, cultures, and generations.
Crucially, we are at a critical moment where we need to hear the perspectives of path builders who are catalyzing change in themselves and their communities. Together, we can build a positive rural vision, one that builds stronger lives, livelihoods, lands. We change — when our ideas about what is possible change.
CURE along with the Office of Sustainability at the University of Minnesota, Morris, and Stevens County Soil & Water Conservation District in cooperation with the Land Stewardship Project as part of our work as a We Are Water West Central Minnesota team — are hosting webinar series.
