Story Idea

Once the new construction is complete on lower campus, the Little Niagara Creek will become a natural focal point of UW-Eau Claire. During an Alumni Association "Let's Do Lunch!" presentation this week, Lynn Peterson, assistant director for operations in Facilities Management, will review the history of the stream going back to the 1930s. She will discuss the impact of human activity and degradation of the stream over the years, and why the time was right to restore this section of campus. She will then explain the restoration process and share the short- and long-term plans for future maintenance. Her presentation, "Little Niagara, on a better course," will run from noon- 1p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, at Fanny Hill Restaurant in Eau Claire. To discuss Lynn Peterson's presentation, contact her at 715-836-3361 or peterslh@uwec.edu.

UW-Eau Claire will host a series of events this fall to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and Latin American Studies Week. Among this week's events is a performance by musical group Alma Andina. The group will perform Andean and Latin American music at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, in Schofield Auditorium. The members, who have all spent time in Chile, derive their inspiration from a love of folklore and a desire to disseminate Latin American music and the rich musical heritage of the Andes.
