ADV - Adventures with Space-Time Biodiversity - Lunch with a Scientist
East Bethel, MN 55005
We invite you to attend our Lunch with a Scientist series from the comfort, cleanliness and safety of your own home! You must register at z.umn.edu/LWASonline in order to receive the Zoom webinar link and password.
Topic: Adventures with Space-Time Biodiversity Presented by: Maggie Anderson, graduate student in the U of MN's Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior
Join life-long learners virtually for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek. Bring your lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! Maggie Anderson is a graduate student in the Isbell Lab. She is curious about how the biodiversity of Minnesota prairie plants changes across space and time and how this "space-time biodiversity" can benefit both humans and pollinators. Her research also investigates how climate change may impact space-time biodiversity and what this might mean for future prairie conservation.
A short registration process is required to virtually attend the webinar (beyond enrolling on Master Naturalist or Destiny One), so plan to spend 5-10 minutes ahead of the program making sure you are correctly signed up at z.umn.edu/LWASonline!
Meeting from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. on:
- Tuesday, April 13, 2021
