Meeting at the Library: Lake Invaders
7 p.m….610 Woodmere Ave., Traverse City
Join us for a presentation by William Rapai, author of Lake Invaders: Invasive Species and the Battle for the Future of the Great Lakes. There are over 180 exotic species in the Great Lakes, and most are innocuous…but a handful of them are conducting an all-out assault on the Great Lakes and winning the battle (sea lamprey, alewife, round goby, quagga mussel, zebra mussel, Eurasian watermilfoil, spiny water flea, and rusty crayfish). Mr. Rapai sounds a call to action and makes a strong case for what is at stake; examining the environmental, economical, and politic issues at stake in a balanced, lively, and accessible way.
