What Ecuador Can Teach Us About Rivers In Minnesota

Kevin Strauss, M.S. Ed., Education Coordinator, Zumbro Watershed Partnership

Thursday, Jan. 14, 6:30 pm

Cascade Meadow Wetlands and Environmental Science Center
2900--19th St. NW, Rochester, MN 55901

 

With its Pacific Ocean coastline, skyscraping Andes Mountains, and rainforest Amazon River headwaters, the nation of Ecuador couldn’t be more different from the Zumbro Watershed. But on closer inspection, Ecuador has a lot to teach us about Minnesota rivers. Hear why Ecuadorian rivers don’t have erosion problems, why some Ecuadorian rivers have disappeared, what happens in communities where you “can’t drink the water,” and what this can teach us about the Zumbro River.

 

 


These talks are part of the Zumbro Watershed Partnership’s “Water Ways” Speaker Series that takes place the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Cascade Meadow Wetland and Environmental Science Center in Rochester.
