Science writer and University of Iowa IIHR – Hydroscience and Engineering archivist Connie Mutel will be a guest on Iowa Public Radio’s “Talk of Iowa” this Wednesday, June 17, at 10 a.m.

Mutel has written several books on Iowa ecology and natural history, including The Emerald Horizon: The History of Nature in Iowa (2008) and A Watershed Year: Anatomy of the Iowa Floods of 2008 (2010). She will be sharing insight from her new book, which focuses on climate change. Mutel frequently writes about the effects of climate change on Iowa’s already altered natural environment.
