After last year’s big turn out for Trout Lake Station’s inaugural open house, we here at the Center for Limnology decided we were on to something. It seems that the people of Wisconsin are curious about what it is we do and want to know more about their lakes.
So this summer we decided to welcome the public into both of our centers of work. On June 22nd, more than 120 people stopped by to see what was up at Hasler Lab on the shores of Lake Mendota. Then, on August 3rd, 212 visitors streamed through Trout Lake Station way up in northern Wisconsin’s “lake district.”
Special thanks go out to summer undergrad student, Ali Branscombe, who helped organize the Trout Lake Station open house and to Grace Hong, photographer extraordinaire of the event here in Madison.
