The Spring 2008 Fairhaven Lecture Series will take a closer look at many of these wonders via a guided tour provided by a number of UW-Whitewater's finest scientists. From increasing efforts to better preserve the world's many natural wonders, to closer looks at biologic, geologic, and geographic aspects of Wisconsin, to examinations of mysteries like volcanoes and meat-eating plants, this series has it all.
