Keep It Great: The State of Lake Erie
November 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Lake Erie is the world’s 11th largest body of fresh water, the most biodiverse of the Great Lakes and a lynchpin of the economies of communities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Canada. It has also declined under decades of human influence, including climate change threats, commercial overuse and pollution. But recent human efforts have shown we can turn away the dangers that face Lake Erie and restore it to its full greatness. Join us for a moderated discussion on the state of our Great Lake, what challenges it currently faces and what case studies of success we can build from.
