Lake Superior Estuarium

Superior, WI

The River Talks 2019-29 season is the seventh year of science cafe-style evening talks about the St. Louis River Estuary. The River Talks is a free, annual, informal speaker series about the St. Louis River Estuary in Duluth-Superior and a cooperative project between the Wisconsin and Minnesota Sea Grant programs and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve. The talks will be held monthly through May 2020 at the Reserve's Lake Superior Estuarium on Barker's Island in Superior.

Come learn about the St. Louis River! Scientists, businesses, and agency staff who work and depend on the St. Louis River Estuary will share their thoughts and information about river projects each month during the academic year. We encourage you to ask questions and share your thoughts, too.
