The St. Louis River talks

It’s time to grab a mug and kick back and talk about the St. Louis River.

Wisconsin Sea Grant and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve are teaming up for a series of cafe-type evening talks about the St. Louis River estuary.

Topics will include river restoration, research and outreach projects. Speakers will include agency representatives, scientists, tribal representatives, artists and businesses. The first River Talk is scheduled for 7 p.m. today at the Red Mug coffee house, 916 Hammond Ave. in Superior. Pat Collins with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will present “In the Weeds: Some Perspectives on History and Habitat in the St. Louis River Estuary.”

The series will be held monthly at the Red Mug and then move to Duluth’s Clyde Iron Works restaurant next year. For more information, contact Marie Zhuikov at (715) 392-3472 or
