On the Edge! Great Lakes Coastal Research
Duluth – July 13
Grand Marais – July 14

Jack Kelly of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Mid-continent Ecology Division will discuss research involving Lake Superior and the other Great Lakes to develop techniques to understand, assess, and report on the ecological condition of their shallow-water coastal areas. These "edges" are viewed as the lakes' frontline. Due to their vulnerability to human impact, it is important to monitor their status.

Great Lakes in a Changing Climate
Duluth – August 10
Grand Marais – August 11

Lucinda Johnson of the University of Minnesota Natural Resources Research Institute will discuss how the climate in Minnesota is changing. This region is already experiencing warmer temperatures and increased precipitation compared with records collected over the last century. By 2100, summer temperatures near Lake Superior are expected to be similar to those currently seen in Kansas. Come learn about ways our ecosystems have been changing and what the latest climate research suggests about the future of the Great Lakes.

Restoring Coaster Brook Trout
Duluth – September 7
Grand Marais– September 8

In this final talk of the Liquid Science series, Jeffrey Gunderson of the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program will describe how, by the early 1900s, coaster brook trout were nearly eliminated from Lake Superior and its tributaries by human impacts. Research and history suggest that rehabilitation of this native trout will require careful planning and cooperation. Come learn about the biology and management of coaster brook trout, and the partnerships that are creating a future for this magnificent fish.

All talks are from 7-8 PM at the following locations:

EPA Gitchee Gumee Conference Facility
