A Superior Discussion

Another in a series of notes from the very busy ENSTers — Mike Link and Kate Crowley from Full Circle Superior are speaking on Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Steitz Hall 102. Here’s a brief description:

Full Circle Superior’s mission is to bring attention, education and research to the Great Lakes and to promote healthy water quality and fresh water conservation now and for future generations. Through the summer of 2010, two retired naturalists and educators, Mike Link and Kate Crowley, successfully circumnavigated Lake Superior along its shoreline on foot! This 1500+ mile journey has taken them through 4 states and provinces, dozens of state, provincial and national parks, and countless communities and special places over the past 5 months. The hikers, assisted by a small support crew, conducted a scientific study of the vegetation, hydrology, ecology and sociology of the lake in collaboration with various research institutions and universities on both sides of the border to build a benchmark body of data on the lake for the study of future generations to come.

See you there.
