Our fearless staff takes to the open waters of Lake Erie

Recently, our staff learned about the latest issues for western Lake Erie from a crew of experts during a half-day boat excursion. Our cruise was tailored to our interests thanks to a partnership with Michigan Sea Grant, HCMA and USGS. The dialogue we had about the historic and current fishery, human impacts, invasive species and more added to our understanding of Lake Erie and reminded us of how the work we do with our partners upstream impacts this unique waterbody.
