Summer Educational Cruises on Lake Superior

For six summers, Minnesota Sea Grant, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Extension Service, took over 1,200 people from more than 100 communities onto the waters of Lake Superior to examine coastal conditions and discuss stormwater management. During 70 half-day outings conducted from eight ports, participants explored how human activities influence water quality and conducted water quality tests. The last cruises took place in 2009.
