GLIN==> Cafe Scientifique Duluth: Stopping the Stowaways



Cafe Scientifique Duluth: Stopping the Stowaways

Stopping the Stowaways: Aliens of Lake Superior
Monday, May 1, 7 p.m.
Pizza Luce, 11 East Superior Street, Duluth, MN 55802
Free, participants must be 18 or older

This month Cafe Scientifique explores invasive species that are impacting the country and Lake Superior. What are these aquatic invaders, and how did they come to inhabit Lake Superior? What environmental problems are caused by invasive species, and what are researchers doing to understand this threat and stem the tide?

Join Doug Jensen and Dale Bergeron from UMD's Minnesota Sea Grant Program for a timely discussion of aquatic ecology and the environmental and economic impacts of invasive species. What is the future of Lake Superior's fragile ecology, and how is the shipping industry responding to this problem?

Cafe Scientifique is a monthly forum for science and popular culture hosted by the Bell Museum of Natural History in Minneapolis, and made possible by a grant from the University of Minnesota's Council on Public Engagement.
