Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center will discuss their research that takes place on the Great Lakes, including deep-water science, invasive species, coastal ecosystems, restoration ecology, and environmental health.

Speakers include: Dr. David Warner (USGS Deepwater Science Program); Dr. Bruce Manny (Restoration of Fish Spawning Habitat in the Huron-Erie Corridor); Joseph Baustian (Reconnecting Coastal Wetlands in the Great Lakes Basin to Improve Ecosystem Functioning); David Galbraith (Forecasting Invasive Phragmites Expansion in the Great Lakes Coastal Zone)

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, The Great Lakes Science Center exists to meet the Nation's need for scientific information for restoring, enhancing, managing, and protecting living resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes basin ecosystem. The Center has biological stations and research vessels located throughout the Great Lakes Basin and is the only federal agency that has a large research vessel (70 ft.+) operating on all five Great Lakes! This event is for adults and teens (grade 9 and up).
