History of the Upper Estuary and Fond du Lac Neighborhood: River history and winter stories
The March 8th River Talk features Christine Carlson, historian, and Mark McConnell, Elder, Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe. It will be in person only—indoors at the Lake Superior Estuarium and outdoors on the nearby snow or frozen estuary if conditions allow. This talk is in conjunction with the St. Louis River Summit and has slightly different timing, going from 6:30-8:00pm.
Light refreshments will be provided. The Lake Superior Estuarium is an indoor, accessible venue with two single-user accessible restrooms. The Reserve will provide seating outdoors for the outdoors portion. If there are certain accommodations that will allow for or improve your experience at this program, please contact Luciana Ranelli, Education Coordinator, via phone at 715-399-4085 or email at Luciana.Ranelli@wisc.edu.
