Caring for Aquatic Systems in Northeast Indiana

Oct 19, 2017
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Description

This year, University Community Conversation (UC²) is exploring how we care for the community in northeast Indiana. Fort Wayne is known as the "City of Three Rivers," but those rivers are connected to intricate water sytems on which human and non-human inhabitants rely. What is an aquatic system? What challenges are created by emphasizing care for these systems, and what opportunities become available by caring for them?

Bruce Kingsbury, professor of biology, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, director of the Environmental Resources Center

Bob Gillespie, assosciate professor or biology, director of Crooked Lake Biological Station
