A free, informal speaker series about the St. Louis River Estuary in Duluth-Superior

Jenney Sherren, freshwater fellow at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve, will present, “I’ve Seen the Light: Working to Detect Bloody Red Shrimp in the St. Louis River,” on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Estuarium (3 Marina Drive, Superior, Wisconsin). Refreshments will be provided.

Last summer, Sherren led a project that used light to try and trap bloody red shrimp, a potentially new invasive species in the Duluth-Superior Harbor. Through this project, which was conducted at night, she gained insight into what independent research entails and how to solve problems. The project also shed light on a mysterious side of the harbor that many do not see – what the river is like when people are asleep. Did she find the invasive shrimp? Come to the Estuarium to find out!

The Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs offer this series of informal evening talks about the St. Louis River Estuary. Everyone is invited and refreshments will be available.
