Lake Superior Cruises Offered

May 19, 2008

Registration is open for the fifth season of the award-winning "View From the Lake" boat trips. Water quality specialists from University of Wisconsin Extension and the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program will board the L.L. Smith, Jr. with citizens and the research vessel's crew to explore Lake Superior.

For $20, participants will hear the latest information about the importance of forests and trees for protecting water quality and habitat. During the three-hour boat tour, participants will also collect and view samples of microscopic plants and animals from the depths, and see what the coast of Lake Superior looks like.

These educational cruises sell out quickly. Registration is available at www.seagrant.umn.edu/vfl or by calling Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-8106. A total of 26 trips are scheduled for the following ports (visit the Web site for trip times):
