Meet Dan Hansen: From Entomologist to Environmentalist

Last week, I was lucky enough to interview Dan Hansen about waste reduction and sustainable operations. Dan is the facilities maintenance technician at the Mill City Museum, however, his passion and experiences in natural history and sustainability go far beyond this job title. You can tell from a glimpse of his exquisite worldwide insects collection and his wide range of reusable materials storage at his workshop.


Our New Sustainability Intern

Hi everyone, I’m Yixuan (pronounced as “E-Shwan”) Cai. I’m the new sustainability intern here at Minnesota Historical Society. In the following weeks, I’ll work with Shengyin to develop our More for the Mission campaigns. I’m looking forward to learning how museums address sustainability issues and making voices for sustainability heard. Since I’ll post a few entries here in the following weeks, maybe you want to know a little bit about me!
