ADV - Women of Cedar Creek: Lunch with a Scientist
East Bethel, MN 55005
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! March 8th, 2022 is International Women's Day! Postdoctoral researcher Dr. Katrina Freund Saxhaug will join us to share some of the contributions of Cedar Creek's female scientists and conservationists. Although most of the 'big names' at Cedar Creek historically have been men, women have played essential and - until recently - poorly-documented roles at the field station since the 1930s. Dr. Freund Saxhaug has spent over a decade digging into the archives and reconstructing some of these stories, which she will share in her presentation.
THIS PROGRAM WILL BE ONLINE. To sign up for the online webinar go to: http://z.umn.edu/LWASonline.
THERE WILL NOT BE ANY IN-PERSON PROGRAMMING THIS MONTH.
Meeting from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. on:
