Sunday, Jan. 7 at 4 p.m. —FAIR HAVEN—Not so long ago, wetlands were known as marshes or swamps, and landowners rushed to drain and fill them. Then we learned that wetlands are good – for animals and humans too, especially in this age of changing climate. Come learn about wetlands restoration science and how it’s applied in Vermont to restore wildlife habitat, sequester carbon, and attenuate floodwater.
The Science Pub lecture series offers free gatherings of curious, stimulating folks. Hear short informal lectures by area experts, and join the lively conversation. Have a drink, stay for dinner (or not), and end your weekend with a spurt of brain growth.

James Eikenberry, wetlands specialist, will begin his talk at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 7 at the Fair Haven Inn.
