Wetlands =AD They're Not Just for Mosquitoes Anymore

The public is invited to the next free talk in the "Superior Science
for You!" speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea
Grant Program. 

On March 12 at 7 p.m. in the Duluth, Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) Mid-Continent Ecology Division, Gitchee Gumee Conference Facility
(6201 Congdon Blvd.), Janet Keough, associate director for science with
the EPA in Duluth, will present, "Wetlands =AD They're Not Just for
Mosquitoes Anymore."

Although they are small in proportion to the open lake, the coastal
wetlands of Lake Superior generate significant biological activity.
The EPA is examining the mechanics and ecology of these often
over-looked habitats of Lake Superior.  Join Dr. Keough as she explains
how wetlands contribute to life in the lake and their relationship with
Lake Superior's seiches.

A reception will follow the talk.  If you can't attend the talk in
person, try listening through your computer!  Live audio will be
broadcast from the EPA Lab through Minnesota Sea Grant's Web site at:
www.seagrant.umn.edu/speakerseries/index.html.  Computer listeners can
view the speaker's slides and even e-mail the speaker questions and she
will answer them at the end of the talk.  A video of the presentation
will be posted to this site the next day.  Video archives of previous
talks and more information about the series can also be accessed
through the speaker series Web page.

This Lake Superior-related speaker series was made possible by a grant
funded under the Coastal Zone Management Act by NOAA's Office of Ocean
and Coastal Resource Management in conjunction with Minnesota's Lake
Superior Coastal Program.
