Clarke Historical Library Speaker Series - Summer 2015
Tuesday, July 14
7:00 p.m. - Park Library Auditorium
Nancy Auer, co-editor of The Great Lake Sturgeon
This collected volume captures many aspects of the remarkable Great Lakes sturgeon, from the mythical to the critically real. Lake sturgeon is sacred to some, impressive to many, and endangered in the Great Lakes. A fish whose ancestry reaches back millions of years and that can live over a century and grow to six feet or more, the Great Lakes lake sturgeon was once considered useless, and then overfished nearly to extinction.
A professor at Michigan Technological University with a doctorate in biological sciences, Nancy Auer has dedicated much of her career to the study and restoration of the lake sturgeon. She is one of the region's leading experts on the fish.
Both presentations will be held in the Park Library Auditorium. They are free and open to the public.
An author's reception will follow each presentation, and will be held in the Clarke Historical Library
