ADV - Reversing Biodiversity Loss: Lunch with a Scientist
East Bethel, MN 55005
Join life-long learners online OR in-person for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek. Bring your lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! New international goals seek to reverse global biodiversity loss in the next few decades. What might this look like on the ground, at Cedar Creek? Dr. Forest Isbell will join us this month to share about his new RESCUE experiment, designed to consider how the deleterious effects of habitat loss, which is the greatest threat to biodiversity on land, can be reversed. In-person participants are invited to join Dr. Isbell for a tour of the RESCUE plots after the livestreamed webinar!
THIS PROGRAM WILL BE BOTH ONLINE AND IN-PERSON. To sign up for the online webinar go to: http://z.umn.edu/LWASonline. The in-person program will take place at the Lindeman Research and Discovery Center (2660 Fawn Lake Drive NE, East Bethel MN 55005); the livestreamed webinar will be followed by a field tour of the RESCUE experiment with Dr. Isbell.
Meeting from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. on:
