Learning in Retirement: “SIU’s Campus Lake: A Living Laboratory”
October 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Dr. Marjorie Brooks will discuss SIU’s Campus Lake projects at the Southern Illinois Learning in Retirement meeting. In 2016, the University initiated draining and dredging of the Lake to remove 50 years’ accumulation of decaying leaves and wetland plants. Dr. Brooks will share the results of that work and provide the latest updates on Lake projects.
A Professor in the SIU Department of Zoology, Dr. Brooks has research interests in freshwater and marine biogeochemistry and aquatic ecology.
The meeting, free and open to the public, will begin with a coffee and social hour at 9:30 a.m.
