Public Talk Links North Shore Land Use to Water Quality

April 27, 2004

The public is invited to the next free talk in the “Liquid Science” speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mid-Continent Ecology Division.

On May 11 at 7 p.m. at Hartley Nature Center (3001 Woodland Ave.), Jesse Schomberg, coastal communities educator with Minnesota Sea Grant, will present, “Linking Land Use to Water Quality on the North Shore.” Schomberg will discuss how land use and development affects our local water quality, and what we can do to protect our shared water resources. Water quality has been making the news this year in Northern Minnesota, and the headlines aren’t always encouraging. The lands we live on and the way we live on them contribute greatly to the pollution in streams and in Lake Superior. Find out what you can do to improve the area’s water quality.

A reception will follow the talk. For more information, visit Liquid Science online (www.seagrant.umn.edu/speakerseries/) or contact Minnesota Sea Grant by e-mail (seagr@d.umn.edu) or by phone (218-726-8106).

This series was made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources-Waters and Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program through the Coastal Zone Management Act, which is administered through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
