                     Discover "A View From the Lake"

Throughout the summer, a series of Lake Superior boat trips will be
offered aboard the L.L. Smith, Jr. Research Vessel that will allow
residents from Bayfield to Grand Marais to view their community from
the water.

Educators from the Lake Superior Research Institute and University of
Minnesota Sea Grant Program will use the scene  to discuss land use,
development, natural resources and water quality issues. Participants
can try their hand at collecting water samples, see displays of local
geographical information, and learn about Lake Superior research.

The L.L. Smith, Jr. will be visiting ports in western Lake Superior
from June 18  July 13. Register for the Washburn and Bayfield trips by
calling the Inland Sea Society at (715) 682-8188. Register for all
other trips by calling Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-8106.
