Cruising Educators

Sea Grant staff and collaborators took on the challenge of educating educators last October during the University of Minnesota Extension Educators’ annual conference. Over 100 minds eager to learn about Minnesota’s water resources boarded the Vista Star, a tour boat that cruises Lake Superior and the Duluth-Superior harbor, for “Aqua Quest.” They visited 10 stations aboard the boat, discovering answers to such questions as, “What aspect of our lakes do Minnesotans value more: scenery, recreation, or economics?” and “What is the main cause of smelly well water, and how do you deal with the problem?”

Aqua Quest also exposed the educators to the resources and expertise available through the University of Minnesota’s Sea Grant Program and Water Resources Center, which co-sponsored the half-day program.
