River Talk Series Begins With Climate Change

Grab a mug of coffee or maybe a glass of beer and learn about the St. Louis River Estuary at the same time. Wisconsin Sea Grant and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve are starting the third year of informal, science café-type evening talks about the estuary.

These informal “River Talks” for 2015-2016 begin in October and will be held monthly (except in December) through February at Barker's Waterfront Grille (Barker's Island Inn) in Superior, Wis., and will then move across the estuary to the Vikre Distillery in Duluth, Minn.

Dates and tentative topics are:

No talk in December
