CAFE SCIENTIFIQUE: Looking at Lichens 1/8

| No Comments

Tuesday, January 8, 6 p.m.
Kitty Cat Klub, Dinkytown
Admission $5
We’ve all seen lichens growing on rocks, trees, or buildings. Yet their unusual and complex structure often goes unnoticed. Though they appear to be a single entity, lichens are actually complex and versatile organisms. Bell Museum Curator of Lichens, Imke Schmitt, will discuss the evolution of lichens, which species provide food, medicines and clothing dyes, and which help out nature by cleaning the air and adding color to the landscape.

Cafe Scientifique: Re-Greening Cities 12/18

| No Comments

Tuesday, December 18, 7 p.m.
Bryant-Lake Bowl, Uptown
Admission $5
City parks characteristically define urban nature—an oasis of the natural world in a man-made environment. But urbanites are craving new ways to experience nature and are interested in exploring emerging trends in green infrastructure and park design to redefine urban nature. Join Laura Musacchio, Associate Professor in the University of Minnesota’s landscape architecture, conservation biology and water resource science programs for a discussion about the redefinition of urban nature.
