Wetlands – They’re Not Just for Mosquitoes Anymore

March 3, 2003

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 – 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. 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.

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.
