State lakes are topic of Science Café

Faculty start science series at Java Vino

The state’s changing climate and vegetation will be the topic at the inaugural meeting of the La Crosse Science Café.

Joan Bunbury, UWL associate professor of Geography and Earth Science, will speak at a science series at Java Vino, La Crosse.

Joan Bunbury, an associate professor of Geography and Earth Science at UW-La Crosse, will speak on “Impacts of Climate and Land Cover Change on Wisconsin Lakes” at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at Java Vino, 2311 State Road, in La Crosse. Bunbury’s research interests include understanding how freshwater environments have responded to natural and human activities.

The Science Café provides an opportunity to engage with a scientist to explore the latest news in science and technology. It’s the brainchild of three UWL Chemistry & Biochemistry Department faculty members: Nadia Carmosini, Basu Battacharyya and Ben Haenni.
