The University of Wisconsin-Superior welcomed Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes and Rep. Nick Milroy for a tour of the Lake Superior Research Institute (LSRI). Also taking part in the event were Rep. Jill Billings, Kathy Blumenfeld, Sec. of the Department of Financial Institutions; Catherine L. Haberland, Assistant Deputy Sec. of the Department of Financial Institutions; Sen. Jeff Smith, and Rep. Jodi Emerson. The event included a tour of multiple laboratories and demonstrations.

“It was an amazing opportunity show the Lt. Governor, Secretaries, and Legislators the outstanding applied research, innovation, and non-traditional learning opportunities taking place at LSRI," said Matt TenEyck, Director of the LSRI. "They got to see first-hand the environmental research and services that directly benefit the people, industries, and natural resources of Northern Wisconsin.”

The LSRI was created in 1967 and formally recognized by the University of Wisconsin’s Board of Regents in 1969. LSRI’s mission is to conduct environmental research and provide services that directly benefit the people, industries, and natural resources of the Upper Midwest, the Great Lakes Region, and beyond; provide non-traditional learning and applied research opportunities for undergraduate students; and foster environmental education and outreach in the Twin Ports and surrounding communities.
