Dr. Robert Sterner
Director, Large Lakes Observatory
University of Minnesota Duluth
Did you know that only five lakes hold more than half of Earth’s liquid, surface freshwater? These gigantic and amazing ecosystems are simultaneously awe-inspiring, valuable, and threatened. In this talk Dr. Robert Sterner from the Large Lakes Observatory, University of Minnesota Duluth will consider how human action has altered these environments, how we value the water they contain, and what responsibilities come with our region being “water rich.” He will take us on a virtual tour to some of Earth’s largest lakes — the focus of attention at the Large Lakes Observatory.
