Join life-long learners for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek! Bring your own lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! Each month, scientists will present a general-audience lecture about their work at or related to Cedar Creek.

March's speaker will be atmospheric scientist Dr. Sam Potter. Minnesota winters have already been impacted by human-caused climate change, and will continue to quickly warm as we head further into the 21st century. Sam will begin with a wrap-up discussion of the 2018-2019 winter and its connections to global climate phenomena. He will then discuss how Minnesota winters and Minnesota ecosystems are projected to change as the impacts of climate change worsen.
