Explore the Stories of the Estuary through the eyes of people that live and work here, and delve into the Science of the interplay between humans and ecosystems. See how Deep Maps capture the beauty and complexity of this special place. 

As a consultant on this project I set up interviews with people living and working around the estuary. From coffee at kitchen tables overlooking the river, to canoe trips into the estuary itself, I was gifted stories of our connection to place. Each story is worth a listen. Project was funded jointly through Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute and the Minnesota Sea Grant College Program, both supported by the NOAA National Sea Grant College Program, United States Departmen of Commerce, 2010-2014.
