Lake Talks speaker series

The Lake Talks is a series of free, informal talks in communities along or near the Lake Michigan shoreline, addressing issues of relevance to those communities or the Great Lakes as a whole. Each event includes time for audience interaction and discussion.

The series kicked off March 4, 2020, with an event in Green Bay. The two remaining spring events have been postponed to fall due to COVID-19. Details will be announced on this page when those talks are rescheduled and other talks are added.

Questions? Contact the series coordinator, Wisconsin Sea Grant science communicator Jennifer Smith.
