Trout Lake Research Rewind: Madison CFL Open House

by Riley Steinbrenner

Week Four

On June 23rd, Susan Knight and I made our way down to Madison to help at the Center for Limnology’s Open House at Hasler Lab. Activities included identifying plant species–with help of macrophyte experts Susan and Carol Warden–research expeditions on Lake Mendota, scoping out aquatic bugs and zooplankton, learning about local fish species and, of course, arts and crafts! 
The free event was open to the public, and over 330 people passed through the doors of Hasler Lab to get a sneak peak at what the CFL’s freshwater researchers do year-round. Even Bucky Badger made a visit! Thank you to everyone who came out, and we’re looking forward to the Open House on August 4th up at Trout Lake Station!
