Mark Your Calendars! Aug. 4th: Trout Lake’s 7th Annual Open House

BOULDER JUNCTION, WI – On Friday, August 4th, the UW-Madison Center for Limnology will host its 7th annual Open House at the Trout Lake Research Station.

Two young visitors watch WDNR reps haul in the Fyke net.

Join us from 1 to 5 pm for a chance to get a first-hand look at what research is going on at the station this summer, as well as meet the scientists and students conducting it!

Activities for visitors will include riding out on pontoon boats for a “research cruise” on Trout Lake, meeting some of the fish that call Wisconsin’s northern lakes home, learn to tell invasive species from natives, and talking with scientists about the state of Wisconsin lakes and our role in keeping them healthy for future generations.

There will also be aquatic-themed crafts for kids, an art exhibition of material produced by the station’s annual “Artists in Residence,” and, of course, free Babcock Dairy ice cream brought up from the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus!

The event is free and open to visitors of all ages.

2013 “Artist in residence,” Ann Singsaas, interacts with visitors to Trout Lake Station’s annual open house.

Scientists at the Center for Limnology conduct research all over the world, exchanging knowledge and helping to solve global environmental problems. We hope you’ll join us at Trout Lake Station, where researchers are doing world-class research on Wisconsin lakes.

Trout Lake Station is located at 10810 Hwy N. (between Hwy 51 and Hwy M). For more information, call 715-356-9494 or e-mail hinterthuer (at) wisc (dot) edu
