Exploring the Lake Superior Food Web.”

Explore the foundations of underwater life with Dr. Auer, a limnologist and engineer with over 30 years experience on the Great Lakes. Dr. Auer will describe some of the mysterious phenomena observed in the lower food web of Lake Superior, relating these findings to the stewardship of this precious resource.
