Lake Superior Cruises Offered

Registration is open for a third season of "A View From the Lake" cruises. Water quality specialists from the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the University of Wisconsin Extension are again boarding the L.L. Smith, Jr. with citizens and the research vessel's crew to discuss Lake Superior.

For $15, participants can consider research on climate change, stormwater, and mercury pollution in the context of community planning and decision making. Returning participants should find the information new and thought provoking. During the 3-hour boat tour, participants will also collect water samples and see some of the critters that live in Lake Superior.

These educational cruises typically sell out quickly. Participants must pre-register on the Web at www.seagrant.umn.edu/vfl or by calling Minnesota Sea Grant at (218) 726-8106. A total of 24 trips are scheduled for the following ports (call Sea Grant or visit the Web site for trip times):

	Ashland, WI: June 13-14
	Washburn, WI: June 16-17

	Grand Marais, MN: June 23-25
	Silver Bay, MN: June 27
	Two Harbors, MN: July 14-15
	Duluth/Superior: July 6-8 and 20-22

"A View from the Lake" is funded by grants from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the Coastal Programs in Wisconsin and Minnesota through the Coastal Zone Management Act, which is administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration?s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
