Science for Everyone – Studying Wisconsin: The Life of Increase Lapham

October 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

In this long overdue tribute to Wisconsin’s first scientist, authors Martha Bergland and Paul G. Hayes explore the remarkable life and achievements of Increase Lapham (1811–1875). Lapham’s ability to observe, understand, and meticulously catalog the natural world marked all of his work, from his days as a teenage surveyor on the Erie Canal to his last great contribution as state geologist.

$5 donation suggested. No registration required.
