The Grand Portage Reservation is at the northeastern tip of Minnesota. The Air Quality Program has many ongoing projects in order to maintain healthy indoor and outdoor air. These projects include monitoring for regional haze and particulate matter, indoor air quality, invasive plant removal, public outreach, environmental education, alternative energy, and climate change.

Asthma Triggers

With colder weather coming our way (not quite yet I hope!), it is important to think about the air quality in your home. We will be spending more time in our homes during the colder seasons, and there are a few steps you can take in order to make the air in your home cleaner. If you or your family have asthma or any respiratory diseases, taking some action is especially important.

The EPA has an excellent web site with information on asthma and ways to reduce any asthma triggers in your home. There is a helpful box on the right side of the page that contains a list of asthma triggers and links to more information about them. If you have any further questions or concerns, give me a call or stop by my office at Trust Lands.

Now, let's hope for good ricing and good fall colors!
