Friends of Lakeside Lab Seminar Series to kick off May 22 

The Friends of Lakeside Lab Seminar Series is getting underway for the season at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory.

Executive Director Mary Skopec says the series will be held on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer.  "So we have a Tuesday night Speaker Series, and it really is meant to showcase the kinds of work that is either happening at Lakeside Lab or just interesting scientific topics, and so those are Tuesday nights at 7 pm in Mahan Hall on the Campus of Iowa Lakeside Lab, and we do encourage the general public or people that have interest in these topics to come on out and hear what the speakers have to say and engage with them."

She notes that many of the speakers are faculty on the Lakeside Campus.  "We use this as an opportunity for the faculty to show what they're doing and share some of their research with the public, so we do have a number of presentations by our faculty on Campus."

Next Tuesday's talk will feature Author Cornelia Mutel, starting at 7 pm.

The Seminar Series is free and open to the public.
