Learn About the Lake Erie Lakewide Management Plan (LaMP)

Thursday, November 15, 2001
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Lake Erie has undergone considerable environmental change over time, being the most highly populated basin of the Great Lakes. 

This workshop will offer an in-depth look at Lake Erie and the Lakewide Management Plan (LaMP) that is being used to restore and protect this valuable resource. 

Through a grant from the NY Great Lakes Protection Fund, participants will receive $20* to purchase materials or supplies for their classroom.  Information packet, maps and other materials will be provided.

Presenter Helen Domske of NY Sea Grant and the Great Lakes Program at UB returns to help us learn what makes the shallowest Great Lake the most productive and interesting to study.

*Please note:  Fee can only be paid to those taking the LaMP workshop for the first time.
