The scientists and staff of UMD's Large Lakes Observatory (LLO) invite the public to board and tour the Blue Heron research vessel and indulge in science. During 2014 we will continue to offer the popular "LLO Science Friday," with presentations on scientific topics on the last Friday in each of the spring, summer and fall months. This year the dates for "LLO Science Friday" will be May 30th, June 20th, July 18th, August 22nd and September 26th.
Our September 26th Science Friday will feature a presentation entitled "Manoomin, psin, Zizania: wild rice research with Tribal resource managers and the State of Minnesota” by Dr. Amy Myrbo of the Limnological Research Center of the University of Minnesota.
The R/V Blue Heron will tie up on "LLO Science Friday" in the Twin Ports Harbor at the Great Lakes Aquarium, 353 Harbor Drive.
