Dessert With Discussion Series: Protecting Michigan Lakes and Rivers from Invasive Species (April 2017)

Description:

The Dessert with Discussion Series is a way of connecting the community with both the Kellogg Biological Station and MSU. At each event, the evening's speaker will discuss his/her research, followed by an array of delicious desserts with discussion about the topic. 

For this Dessert With Discussion event, join us for a discussion on Protecting Michigan lakes and rivers from invasive species with MSU Outreach Specialist, Dr. Jo Latimore.  Aquatic invasive species, such as the zebra mussel and the Eurasian water milfoil plant, have caused severe ecological and economic damage in Michigan. Impacts include declines in fish populations, degraded water quality, loss of recreational opportunities, and property damage. New invaders are discovered regularly, and can spread at an alarming rate across the state.

Location:

Academic Center Auditorium, MSU's Kellogg Biological Station, 3700 East Gull Lake Dr, Hickory Corners, Michigan, 49060.
