Great Salt Lake Institute invites to join the Salty Science Series!
Are you expecting a typical story about lake ecology? You may be disappointed as there is nothing typical about Great Salt Lake nor this time in Earth’s history. In a new book, lake experts partnered to reframe and update our knowledge base, include unheard voices, and dispense with incomplete understandings about this lake. It is a time of change and reckoning. Join chapter authors in the Salty Science Series to discuss the future of Great Salt Lake from their lens.
The Salty Science Series is hosted by Great Salt Lake at Westminster College and will feature contributing authors in “Great Salt Lake Biology: A Terminal Lake in a Time of Change” in a series of 6 panel discussions.
