Salty Science Series: Water and Humans at Great Sa...

Presented by Westminster College at Online/Virtual Space

Are you expecting a typical story about lake ecology? You may be disappointed as there is nothing typical about Great Salt Lake nor this time in Earth’s history. In this book, lake experts partner to reframe and update our knowledge base, include unheard voices, and dispense with incomplete understandings about our unique lake. It is a time of change and reckoning.
What is Great Salt Lake without water? In this first webinar we will set the stage for the rest of the series as panelists discuss the effects of water diversion, climate change and humans on our lake. Panelists include: Dr. Bonnie Baxter, Dr. Sarah Null and Dr. Carla Koons Trentleman and will be moderated by GSLI coordinator Jaimi Butler.

The Salty Science Series is hosted by Great Salt Lake at Westminster College and will feature contributing authors in “Great Salt Lake Biology: a Terminal Lake in a Time of Change” in a series of 6 panel discussions. We hope that you will break out your inner nerd and have a lake themed dinner or drink ready to enjoy while you learn about the lake. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the night for the most creative food or libation. Jaimi’s dinner for this first event will include green south arm (avocado) toast sprinkled with course ground halite and a hard-boiled pickled egg on the side.

Don’t worry if you cannot make this virtually in person, as they will be recorded and available when you have time. If you are inclined to buy a book please support our local bookstore, The Kings English, and purchase here: Please support Kings English
