A free, informal speaker series about the St. Louis River Estuary in Duluth-Superior

The River Talk series is partnering with Café Scientifique Twin Ports with a virtual talk at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, via Zoom. Dustin Haines, research coordinator with the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve will present, “Should I Stay or Should I Go? The Clash of Wetlands With lake Levels, Invasives and Humans.”

Wetlands are an essential key to having healthy rivers and estuaries, but they are sensitive to natural and human-caused changes in the environment. This presentation will provide an overview of changes in wetland plant communities of the St. Louis River Estuary due to Lake Superior water levels, invasive non-native plants and human action, including more recent changes seen at the Reserve’s Sentinel Site.
