Detroit River Boat Tour

The Citizens Environment Alliance (CEA) Fourth Annual State of the River Boat Tour is on Saturday, September 22, 2001. Boarding at the foot of Ouellette Avenue in downtown Windsor at 11:30am, we will travel for four hours on the Detroit River.

We are pleased to have Detroit-radio personality Peter Werbe back as the Master of Ceremonies for the Fourth Annual State of the Detroit River Boat Tour.  Also joining us this year are:

James N. Bull, Friends of the Detroit River and Detroit Audubon Society.  James will discuss historical changes in the Biodiversity of the Detroit River Ecosystem;

Mary Beth Doyle, Environmental Health Project Campaign Director for the Ann Arbor Ecology Center.  Mary Beth will speak on air deposition in the Detroit River Area of Concern and Fish Consumption Advisories in the Great Lakes System, and

Gail Krantzberg, incoming Director of the International Joint Commission's Great Lakes Regional Office in Windsor, Ontario.  Dr. Krantzberg will discuss the need for sound scientific monitoring, accurate reporting and the importance of working with community groups in the Great Lakes' Areas of Concern. An ecotoxicologist biologist, Dr. Krantzberg played a key role in the development and implementation of the Remedial Action Plan that led to the restoration of Collingwood Harbor, the only area of concern in the Great Lakes that has been cleaned up to the point where it was taken off the list of contaminated areas in the Great Lakes basin.

Lisa Tulen, Habitat Specialist, Citizens Environment Alliance.  Lisa will discuss the challenges facing binational efforts to restore and protect natural areas in the Detroit River Area of Concern. Ms. Tulen will also address the City of Windsor's Brighton Beach industrial development plans.

Tickets are $25US or $35Cdn and include lunch and the four-hour cruise of the Detroit River.  This an excellent opportunity to learn more about this special river and the need to begin real and meaningful environmental restoration and rehabilitation.  Join us.
