We were invited to head up 1st Avenue to Cottage Grove Place (a senior living facility) to talk about the state of water quality in Iowa and about the work we do at Coe. I went up on January 7 to give an overview, but the main event was on January 13. Each member of last year's crew gave a brief presentation on her research project, and then fielded questions from the audience. We had a great audience of around 30 residents each time (including emeritus chemistry professor Pete Wickham.)
