The Midwest Society of Acoustic Ecology invites its members to a summer potluck at the Chicago home of MSAE President, Eric Leonardson and Deirdre Harrison, who serves as WLP Treasurer.

As in past years with special guests Annea Lockwood and Hildegard Westerkamp, this casual gathering will be an opportunity for members to meet established practitioners in the field and get to know other members.
