Canoeing on a Minnesota Lake: Courtesey zanzibar

Hey do you like to fish, canoe, or swim in Minnesota lakes? I can't imagine our hot humid summers without the relief of a dip in cool Lake Nokomis. But how are those wonderful lakes that make our state so unique doing? Well, our pals across the river at the Bell Museum of Natural History are hosting a cool event next week about just that:

CAFE SCIENTIFIQUE
Fishing for Trouble?

Tuesday, June 13, from 6 to 8 p.m., Varsity Theater, Dinkytown, Free

Deborah Swackhamer and Roland Sigurdson of the U's Water Resources Center will discuss the state of our lakes, including how chemicals can affect water quality, fisheries, and human health. The Café Scientifique event, hosted by the U's Bell Museum of Natural History, precedes a Thursday evening fishing trip with Sigurdson on the shores of Lake Como in St. Paul. To learn more about both events, call 612-624-7083.

Should be a cool event with some good discussion and a chance to get your questions answered. See you there.
