The answer lies in the topic of this month’s Science on Tap, an informal series of science conversations.  This month’s speaker is Paul Robbins, Director of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at UW Madison.   WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski gave him a call to find out more about his upcoming talk on new models for conservation, and how they could even bring an economic boost to Northern Wisconsin. 

Science on Tap is Wednesday night at Minocqua Brewing Company.
