From 1 to 5pm, visitors will get a first-hand look at what research is going on at the station this summer, as well as meet the scientists and students conducting it.

Visitors will have the chance to ride out on pontoon boats for a “research cruise” on Trout Lake, meet some of the fish that call Wisconsin’s northern lakes home, learn to tell invasive species from natives, and talk with scientists about the state of Wisconsin lakes and our role in keeping them healthy for future generations.

There will be aquatic-themed crafts for kids, an art exhibition of material produced by the station’s annual “Artists in Residence,” and, of course, free Babcock Dairy ice cream brought up from the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus!

The event is free and open to visitors of all ages.

Scientists at the Center for Limnology conduct research all over the world, exchanging knowledge and helping to solve global environmental problems. We hope you’ll join us at Trout Lake Station, where researchers are doing world-class research on Wisconsin lakes.

Trout Lake Station is located at 10810 Hwy N. (between Hwy 51 and Hwy M). For more information, call 715-356-9494.
