Riverkeeper and Billion Oyster Project will join the Science Friday Book Club with a deep dive discussion on lakes, invasive species, and more with Dan Egan’s “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes.”

Riverkeeper Habitat Restoration Manager George Jackman will discuss the threat from invasive species and other topics. Roni Barak Ventura from Porfiri Lab at NYU Tandon School of Engineering will talk about her work in the Gowanus Canal and other waterways — which sometimes involves a robotic fish, which may make an on-stage appearance! You’ll also get to test your native species trivia knowledge, and find out ways you can get involved in conservation efforts.

Egan will talk about what it was like to write about the issues plaguing the waters of the five lakes, and the hope held for their future health—as well as people connected to the lakes, literally and figuratively.

Caveat is mixed seating and standing-room. Arrive early to get a good seat! Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. This is a 21+ event.
