Opening Night – Diatom Exhibit (PLAC)
June 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Celebrating 60 Years of Diatoms at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory:
In 1963, Lakeside Laboratory became a front-runner in diatom research. Microscopic algae made of glass, diatoms tell us the history of aquatic ecosystems while providing up to 30% of the air we breathe. As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of this world-renowned course, we invite you to step into the shoes of a diatomist. What story can you find within the glass walls of these microscopic time capsules?
