Stone Laboratory, Ohio State University’s island campus on Lake Erie, has announced its 2011 Guest Lecture Series beginning June 16. Each Thursday evening lecture will begin at 7:45 p.m., lasting until approximately 9 p.m.
Guests are invited to take a Lake Erie Water Taxi, at their own expense, at 7:15 p.m. from the Boardwalk Restaurant dock to Gibraltar Island, where they will be given a short tour before the lecture. The lectures will also be simulcast into 333C Kottman Hall on the Ohio State University main campus, and podcasts will be available at stonelab.osu.edu/events/guest-lectures.
"The Guest Lectures Series is a great way to get Great Lakes information out to the public," says Dr. Jeff Reutter, Director of Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory. "I encourage the public to come and take advantage of the opportunity to hear and interact with each of them."
