GLIN==> Lake Superior Day: July 17, 2005

The largest lake in the world now has its own day of recognition!

Celebrate Lake Superior on Lake Superior Day, July 17, 2005, by hosting an event in your town, community, business, club, youth group, or organization.

The Lake Superior Binational Forum is promoting this basin-wide event to highlight the personal, environmental, economic, and spiritual connections people have to this unique world treasure.

Join the festivities by organizing an activity or event in your community: pass a proclamation designating the third Sunday in July as Lake Superior Day (sample text is available); host an educational activity, photography or writing contests, boating or fishing festivals, art shows, personal actions, or other celebrations. This event will be held annually on the third Sunday in July.

Go to the Forum's website for ideas about how to celebrate the day in your area: www.superiorforum.info. (The site is being updated regularly and will be operational soon.)

For more information, email the Forum at lakesuperiorday@northland.edu.

The Forum is housed in the United States at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at Northland College in Ashland, WI, and in Canada at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The Forum is funded in the US by a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes National Program Office and in Canada by Environment Canada.
