Discover “A View From the Lake”

June 1 , 2004

Throughout the summer, a series of Lake Superior boat trips will be offered aboard the L.L. Smith, Jr. Research Vessel that will allow residents from Bayfield to Grand Marais to view their community from the water. Educators from the Lake Superior Research Institute and University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program will use the scene to discuss land use, development, natural resources and water quality issues. Participants can try their hand at collecting water samples, see displays of local geographical information, and learn about Lake Superior research.

The L.L. Smith, Jr. will be visiting ports in western Lake Superior from June 18 – July 13. Register for the Washburn and Bayfield trips by calling the Inland Sea Society at (715) 682-8188. Register for all other trips by calling Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-8106.
