David Schindler, one of the world’s foremost freshwater ecologists, will give a free public lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 5, in St. Paul.
His lecture, titled “Letting the Light In: Providing Environmental Science to Direct Public Policy,” will examine the tension–sometimes conflict–between science and public policy. Dr. Schindler is an emeritus professor at the University of Alberta. He was the first winner of the Stockholm Water Prize, the world’s most prestigious award for work involving water.
The lecture is sponsored by the Freshwater Society and the University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences. It is a FREE event. Learn more and register to attend at www.freshwater.org.
