Freshwater resources are critically imperiled across the globe. Minnesota is fortunate to contain more than 10,000 lakes and 100,000 stream miles that provide habitat for fish and wildlife, places for recreation, and opportunities for economic growth. Unfortunately, over half of these waters currently don’t meet the Minnesota Pollution Control Agencies standards for recreational use. Dr. Joshua Lallaman, Assistant Professor of Biology at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota will identify some of these major threats to freshwater and root causes of the problems. The presentation will end with a discussion of how community members can engage with water conservation, protection, and stewardship.
Treat yourself to a night of great food and enlightened conversation. Noted speakers and presenters from throughout the country will kick off the evening with an engaging presentation followed by a delicious gourmet meal!
