Her talk will be held at the Lake Superior Estuarium (3 Marina Dr., Superior, Wis.).

Minchak will regale with tales of her work for 22 years as “the face of Minnesota DNR Wildlife in Duluth,” which included the St. Louis River Estuary. She will discuss changes in the Estuary over her career and her unique experiences with wildlife and people. Refreshments will be provided.
