Event Details

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

The talk will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 6:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Yellowjacket Union at the University of Wisconsin-Superior (1605 Catlin Ave., Superior, Wis.). This is a different day of the week (and time and location) than usual because it will be an event in conjunction with the St. Louis River Summit.

Keith Okeson, past-president of the Lake Superior Chapter of Muskies Inc., will talk about the fish stocking efforts in the St. Louis River Estuary and how anglers are volunteering with the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of natural resources and Sea Grant to ensure the sports fishery has a bright future.

Marte Kitson, extension educator with Minnesota Sea Grant and talk host, will provide a short overview of another community-driven event, the City Nature Challenge, which is part of a worldwide effort to collect biodiversity data.

The Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs offer this series of informal evening talks about the St. Louis River Estuary. Everyone is invited and refreshments will be available.
