Join us for an evening digging into the life and legacy of Raymond Lindeman, one of Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve's early scientists. We'll begin at 5:30pm with a hike to Cedar Bog Lake where Ray did his research on ecosystems and energy flow in the 1930s and 40s (weather permitting), then we'll gather in the aptly-named Lindeman Building at 6:30pm or so to hear a presentation from Bill Hoffman. Bill, a UMN staff member, has spent a considerable amount of time researching and writing about Lindeman's early life, scientific work, and impact on the field of ecology. For a preview, read his chapter in Conservation on the Northern Plains, a collection of essays including one by Bill about Ray Lindeman. (free, families welcome)
