Lunch With A Scientist

Join life-long learners for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek! Each month, scientists will present a general-audience lecture about their work at or related to Cedar Creek. Bring your own lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! If weather and topic permit, the program will include a trip out onto the property to see the research project being discussed in action, so please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather. This program is free and registration is recommended but not required.


Lunch with a Scientist programs run from 11:30am to 1pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meet at the Lindeman Research and Discovery Center (2660 Fawn Lake Drive NE, East Bethel 55005).
